Gebo, ghost town of coal mining days

Gebo is ghost town about 30 miles from Worland.  In it's hey day in the 1920s it boasted 20,000 people, 4 times as many as Worland has today.  There is a lot to see out there including a sad baby cemetery as many babies died with the flu epidemic.  We wandered around and drove on some very rough dirt roads and it was really kind of cool!

Brian, Emma, and Andy emerging from a hole that was a root cellar.  Glad he didn't encounter any snakes while he was down there!

Looking for abandoned artifiacts

This was their view, pretty spectacular.  It was so quiet and calm out there.  We saw a lizard, a jack rabbit and a lone antelope.

Contemplating what life used to be like there (I think that's what he's doing!)
