278 / Badger Pass

Badger Pass (el. 6755 ft.) is a high mountain pass in Beaverhead County, located between Bannack, Montana and Dillon, and traversed by Montana Secondary Highway 278. A "miniature gold rush" took place in the 1930s, with the discovery of an
unusual sandstone formation on both sides of Badger Pass Road which turned out to contain gold, and was valued "as high as $42 a ton."
