From bottom to top: The demolished Dock 3, the abandoned Dock 4, and the active BNSF Taconite Dock.
This was not always the top of the elevator.
Harris Machinery rests under snow on the left. Two explorers enjoy the view.
Looking at the side of the Superior Elevator from the tracks that feed the Western. Note the old flagpole.
Above Treasure Mountain Mine is the capped shaft of the defunct San Juan Queen Mine. This is taken near that location, looking down the road that connects the mines to Animas Forks.
The railworks was totally demolished.
The taller of the two smokestacks on site. Note the crack around its crown.
Connecting the Administration Building to the wards fanning out. Historical photos show cots lining this hallway when the hospital was severely overcrowded. Lit by lightning outside the grounds during a huge thunderstorm.
One of my favorite night views of Fort Snelling’s so-called Upper Post, taken between snowstorms.
