Taken as I drove out of Silverton, CO. One of my favorite landscapes of 2015. Want a print? Email me!
The Blacksmith Shop (right) was connected to the Bunk House (left) via this narrow walkway. This is likely due to the fire risk in each building. The left building had a cooking stove and furnace for heat and the right building had a small industrial furnace to repair mining equipment. A little walkway would mean that a fire on one side would be easier to fight from the other.
A gymnasium, if I recall. The last building before the road dead-ends.
Ringling, MT is spread thin across the grassy land.
The fiery side of a launch building, just is it began to rain.
Gloves hang in the basement of the former quality assurance labs.
The Gold Prince is dead, but its ruins show how over-engineered it once was. Although its foundations were concrete, seen here, the rest of the mill was steel. All of its steel and equipment was removed to fix the Sunnyside Mill in Eureka.
A high-voltage tunnel sheathed in concrete dips below ground near a shell packing building that now stores fireworks.
