It’s not far to go into South Pass City today, but there are surprises. As we approach a rise suddenly two small antelope are running full steam toward us with no sign of stopping. By the we register it it’s too late, but the antelope start and swerve away at the last second. Still processing the event, it’s soon explained when an ATV clears the rise and the rider happily tells us to have a good morning.
There’s loud gunfire as we approach town, even a cannon shot. The mill is cranking, and an two baseball teams in antique uniforms face off. We’ve hit town during Gold Rush Days, it becomes evident, the big event of the year. We tour around a bit before finding Ann in the parking lot and heading off to their campsite.
