A safe distance from Prize Mine is its dynamite storage vault, designed to explode up–not out–should the worst happen.
The generator hall of the last power station, as seen from the gantryway.
Bits and things in a pile in the corner of the smelter, the unsold chunks of industrial history that didn’t sell at an on-site auction before my visit.

There are a few campers parked in the abandoned buildings around the NAD. I am guessing that they were once a more secure place to store such things OR they have always been wide open, and this was a quick and free way to dump unwanted toys.
Looking down the walkway that traces the bottom side of the ore dock.
Above the old machine shop is a packing building and a crate of cardboard label rolls.
Fergus Falls State Hospital. Well, technically moonlight… but a with stars nonetheless! The orange glow from the left and in the rear of the building are exterior lights on associated–former State Hospital–buildings. All other light is from the full moon that evening.
