Terrific Day Trips!
Butte is at the center of great drives through wonderful country. Head south on I-15, turn at Divide, drive along the Big Hole River, go through the old ranching towns of Wisdom and Jackson to Bannack, where gold drew men to the Montana Territory in 1863. Bannack State Park preserves many of the original buildings.
Or, at Wisdom, head for the Big Hole Battlefield with its fine interpretive center and easy walk to see where the cavalry fired on Chief Joseph's band. Or head east to the Lewis & Clark caverns. Go west through Anaconda to Philipsburg to see restored Victorian buildings.
