Flower, Cross, Bell, Flower

Bells are highly symbolic, being used from everything from calling worshipers in the morning to exorcising demons at night.

Set the Pie on the Sill

In this ghost town where there were brick, wooden, and dirt-brick buildings, the latter fared the best by far.

Twelve Steps

This ward was the last occupied place in the hospital. It was used as a chemical dependency (drug and alcohol) inpatient program. It seems that they were allowed to paint the walls before they abandoned it… I go back and forth, thinking it is a shame and thinking it is a little cool.

Storage Bunker

North of the assembly complex is a storage network of earthen and concrete bunkers.

East Portal

The portal facing Taconite Harbor (at a healthy distance) is mostly closed. Some kids put bullet holes in it. Shooting down a long tunnel is extremely dangerous, and you should not do it, obviously. Mamiya 6/Portra 160

Door I

The only door into a large windowless concrete room, probably a storage bin. Kodak Portra 160/Mamiya 6.

Hiking Into Gilman

Hiking into the ghost town with enough gear to live there for a few days, if we wanted.
