We packed our baby and drove off on Sunday afternoon to explore this rustic, quiet town. Ghost like, really. Tyler braved the gusts of wind and low 30 degree temperatures to go exploring... I chickened out and stuck to a point and shoot method out the car window. Our adventure took us to Atlantic City, Wyoming, a gulch located near South Pass. It is an old mining settlement founded during the Gold Rush in the 1800's. I'm not sure I'd be so willing to pack my bags to start up a town and hope to land it rich on some gold, but I'm always intrigued by the way people lived and their history.
