Check out photos from Dr. Frazier’s Continental Divide ride from Canada to Mexico.
- Horses were aplenty in Montana and optional for carrying or pulling a small motorcycle.
- 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.
- A BLM campground was quiet until an uninvited guest visited my campsite.
- 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.
- Idiot proof directions to the Continental Divide in New Mexico.
- 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.
- 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.
- This Atlantic City outhouse on the side of a hill offered a “loo with a view.”
- In Atlantic City this salon offered the best haircut in town….and only haircut in town.
