Grand Army Mine Grand Army, as seen from a Gilman Tram grade. Similar Images ...based on the tags: headframes, mountains, ruins, shadows, stonework... The mine was built with stone, wood, and steel. It’s in good condition. Looking out at the abandoned neighborhood around the house. Looking at the last wall of the hotel from the banks of the river.

Thunder Bay Elevator, now stands without a headhouse. Around the silos, a few shacks still stand. Through a section of the tailings boom where mountain winds tore open the sheet metal around the conveyor, I poked my head out. Employee lockers near the stage, Service Building. A light-painted portrait of one of the few remaining carts that moved everything from fresh eggs to soiled laundry through the tunnels.
