Looking up at the network of elevators at the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool. Its train shed doors stand open under the void where conveyors should be. You can see where they used to connect on the left and right. The outside of the building is covered in racist graffiti.
The oldest part of this mill had a wooden roof that rotted away long ago. Slowly, rust is dulling the edge on every cog left behind.
While the last of the Studebaker production buildings were being demolished, I visited again. Here’s a shot taken shortly after the demolition crew left for the day.
A shallow creek traces Illinois Gulch toward the Chain O’ Mines mill. Ball mills are laid out in the sun.
The ‘working’ part of the furnaces are about a story above ground level, so the catwalks snake above the tree line.
When I saw this section, I knew the dock was abandoned.
Sour mash had to be fermented before being used for whiskey making. Nearly all bourbon uses it.
One of my favorite images from my stay… Note the snowed-over road in the distance! This is looking toward Animas Forks.
