2005. Looking across the Mississippi from a park the night after the first snow.
From the highest roof of Ogvilvie’s, Thunder Bay looks like paradise.
A look upriver at the crane of the Port of Detroit, quiet for the night, and the Ambassador Bridge, always humming with Canadian traffic. Downtown Detroit is beautiful, if nobody told you.
Death. About two seconds after the explosives were triggered.
Looking at Carrie from the place where the molten steel would be cast
A washout two thirds of the way down the tram gave me a place to relax in the thin air.
If you look close you can see a figure on the water tower.
Looking across the whole milling operation from its dedicated powerhouse stretching across Eagle River.
Zug Island is a US Steel plant just south of Detroit, and it really lights up the skyline.
Looking down the Gilman-Belden tram.
A comrade lights-up where so many workers apparently congregated to do the same.
Pillsbury from across the Mississippi River and Stone Arch Bridge from the roof of the Washburn Crosby Elevator (aka Gold Medal Flour).
Near Howardsville, Colorado, the Animas River gets quite wide. This is near the Little Nation Mill, which is worth a stop if you’re traveling north from SIlverton. It’s also near the former Gold King Mine, which “blew” in 2015 and flooded the Animas River with toxic mine water.
Taken from the rooftop looking toward downtown, a hometown, a river town.
A panoramic view of the Ambassador Bridge, Detroit River and downtown from the roof of the 1925 warehouse. Ready to move to Detroit?
