Haven't been to Garnet yet and it's not too far from home.  Have been to Bannack 3 times now (another gold ghost town) that the state of Montana put emphasis on preservation and not restoration. Bannack has quite a colorful history and was a gold boomtown and also capitol of Montana territory for awhile.  If you are ever in the Dillion MT area check out Bannack state park, free to residents, small fee for non-residents, small campground for a couple RV's,also little book store & trinkets, bring your own food, etc.
