Some sections of the Continental Divide ran through Indian Reservations, National Parks and over private lands marked with serious “No Trespassing” signs.

Near the Continental Divide this biker art seemed to invite me into the nearby restaurant where I traded Divide tales with local inhabitants.

The “Atlantic City of the West” had at one time boasted of nearly 2,000 inhabitants digging for gold near the Continental Divide.

Atlantic City was a few miles east of the Continental Divide and just north of the Oregon Trail in Central Wyoming.

The ridgeline in the background was the Continental Divide. This gravel road got me close, but not on the ridge. To reach it I would have to bike (bicycle) or hike.

The local residents inside this Atlantic City restaurant had a little fun at my expense, spinning tall tales to this “townie” scribe.

Another “boom to bust” gold mining town near the Continental Divide was South Pass City. Not quite a ghost town, with seven inhabitants on a Saturday night is was ghostly quiet.

Just east of the Continental Divide, restored South Pass City was located on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail.

This friendly dog could well have been my nocturnal visitor from the night before. I noted it did not seem to need to water my motorcycle wheel, meaning it might have done so the night before.

The sign said this was the spot, on the Continental Divide, so I parked and made a test.

My test water mysteriously pooled and then disappeared, seemingly not flowing east or west.
