A shallow creek traces Illinois Gulch toward the Chain O’ Mines mill. Ball mills are laid out in the sun.
A long exposure of the launch pad and its dedicated guard shack. In the middle of the base is a tall antenna which was part of the MARS program during the Gulf War. The MARS program helped connect calls between deployed soldiers and their families.
I’m not sure, actually, whether this was an outhouse (right), but it seems likely. In any case, it was connected by a covered staircase to the Bunk House (left). The soil here was not all tailings, so there is a bit of thick grass–almost the only in sight!
North of the assembly complex is a storage network of earthen and concrete bunkers.
A back-lit tree with the silhouette of a roof spire in the background.
While it looks like a sidewalk, this is the roof the infamous (thanks to Ghost Adventures) steam tunnel that connects the steam plant and demolished Hart House.
One of my favorite images from my stay… Note the snowed-over road in the distance! This is looking toward Animas Forks.
I liked the color of her hair against the rusty rock house and blue winter sky.
At night the city lights blast through the broken windows, casting crazy colors through the off-white interior of the mill.
