A wide view of the poor house. Look at the smokestack and elevator shaft, which show the former roofline.
On the National Mine property are two shafts, both serving the same workings. This one seems to have gotten some upgrades in the 1960s, judging from the condition of the metal.
An orphan culvert and camper, both tossed aside where nobody that will see will care.
This elevator was built in 1922 and was used until the passing rails were removed in the mid-1970s.
As wind and currents moved the ice around between the ore docks, the sounds of crunching echoed through the otherwise quiet bar.
Taken as I drove out of Silverton, CO. One of my favorite landscapes of 2015. Want a print? Email me!
Even with a hundred people parked in front of the lakeside relic, it was invisible.
Looking out from a hallway on the third floor where a ceiling and roof should be. I could not stand in the room, as the floor had collapsed into the basement, but I could put my camera out at arm’s length and fire a few pictures upward, which is how I came away with this image!
