    Wish I'd known about Spokane when we worked in Custer State Park years ago. It would have been fun to explore

    Thanks for the great pictures. Do you ever wonder if there is treasure of some sort hiding around in those old buildings?

    Brings back memories of visiting the Smith mine in Bear Creek Mt, and the museum in Red Lodge dedicated to the 74 that died in the mine.

    My first thought on seeing those pictures was it'd be interesting to camp out there for a couple of weeks and conduct a thorough grid search using a top of the line metal detector. No telling what sorts of really interesting artifacts might turn up.
