The hiking around Central City is beautiful and full of history. Just get a proper topo map!
One of my favorite images from my stay… Note the snowed-over road in the distance! This is looking toward Animas Forks.
Sidewalks to a boarded barracks, each making the other obsolete in the night.
Part of the Laundry Building with an ugly archway between rooms. Note that even this building had a nurse’s station with shatterproof windows. Laundry was done by supervised patients as part of their Occupational Therapy and the staff took no chances.
The walls are separating on the adobe house…
One of the covered rail loading docks. All of them were overgrown and rust-clad.
When I see this picture, I imagine that I am an ant exploring a mushroom farm.
Everything had to be tested before being sent to the front lines. Here’s where smaller ammunition would be test-fired. I was able to dig up several misfired rounds. Now they live in my collection of oddities.
