Stone Arch Lights

Pillsbury from across the Mississippi River and Stone Arch Bridge from the roof of the Washburn Crosby Elevator (aka Gold Medal Flour).

Stack Poof

Death. About two seconds after the explosives were triggered.

The Animas River, near Mayflower Mill

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.

Port of Detroit – (C)SUBSTREET

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.

Eagle Mills

Looking across the whole milling operation from its dedicated powerhouse stretching across Eagle River.

Right of Way

A washout two thirds of the way down the tram gave me a place to relax in the thin air.
