Big Sky RV Park
It's only a 30 minute drive from Anaconda to Butte. There is so much to see and do in Butte. Our Lady of the Rockies, The Berkley Pit, The Brothel Museum, Evil Knievel's Grave, Historic Homes and many breweries and distilleries.
Berkley Pit. For a few dollars you can visit the small visitor center and walk the tunnel to an overlook of the pit with lots of great info.
The "Steve's" in the tunnel.
I found this particular fact fascinating! I can't imagine all the tunnels under ground here.
400 pounds of copper.
Further up the road is the Mining Memorial.
So somber and so much life lost here in these mines.
Looking back down the mountain at the Berkley Pit.
There were miners that came here to work from all parts of the world.
You will see mines, some still working, all over the mountain sides here.
We found a nice brewery and rested up a bit.
Beautiful tile work, stained glass and wallpapering.
As kids we loved watching Evil Kninevel so we brought my brother to view his grave.
After a full day in Butte, we went back to camp and fished for a bit.
A caught a pretty Brown.
There is actually a small State Park in Anaconda at the old smelter.
We have been to Anaconda twice now and just love it. So much to do and see. Beautiful part of the state. We'd come back again. We'll be heading to see some ghost towns tomorrow.
