Visit Miner’s Delight Ghost Town, BLM Wyoming
In a beautiful spot near the Continental Divide south of Lander, Wyo., Miner’s Delight—a BLM-managed ghost town—is a silent witness to the heyday of Wyoming’s gold mining era. It is part of the South Pass Historic Mining District and is protected as an Area of Critical Environmental Concern.
