Hike the short trail to Coolidge Ghost Town in Montana

Do you like to explore ghost towns?  Coolidge Ghost Town is one of our favorites. You’ll find it on the Pioneer Scenic Byway in Southwest Montana.

From Donna:

Welcome to our August theme: off-the-beaten-path travel. Alan and I especially enjoy exploring out of the way destinations and lesser known places in the world. And because we live in Montana, there’s plenty of opportunity without getting on a plane, boat or train. This summer as our backyard explorations continue, we’ll be sure to share our finds with you. So don’t let the August doldrums get you down, go off-the-beaten-path in your backyard.

From Nicole:

My Itchy Travel Feet’s assistant editor is lounging on a Spanish beach about now. I hope she returns with stories to tell and photos to share. In the meantime, I’ll let you in on the rest of this week’s news:
