    And we ride on (a little slower), to the ghost town of Bannack, former seat of the Montana Territories.

    The jail cell had a direct line-of-sight from the window bars to the gallows. Apparently justice, or the lack thereof, was swift in Bannack back in the day: A suspected criminal was pardoned, banished, or most likely hanged usually within hours (or moments!) of arrest.

    The rings in the floor are for restraining chains. Comfy!

    My summer continued on after we all left Darby, so I'll get my thread caught up with that stuff someday. Also go into more detail and maybe extra pics too...

    What a ride!

    Oh right! Thanks for the reminder. Might be a while, got some other big projects on the front burners at the moment.
