William Duncan built this house for his family in 1879. It has become one of the most popular structures in the ghost town of Animas Forks.
I found a meth lab in this building once. (Yes, I called it in.)
The screen and mineral stained window cross-processed the sky.
One of my favorite images from my stay… Note the snowed-over road in the distance! This is looking toward Animas Forks.
Just across the North Dakota border, a rusty Milwaukee Road boxcar sits where it was shoved off the mainline. The grain elevator in the background marks the tracks, which is still used by BNSF.
One of the older buildings on the site, this is an old power house that provided electricity to the plant. I spent some time walking around it and believe it was fired with coal gas but had a diesel backup installed later.
The fences helped discourage patients from throwing themselves down the stairs.
One of the last times I saw the skyway standing. ADM’s Meal Elevator is in the distance.
Taken as I drove out of Silverton, CO. One of my favorite landscapes of 2015. Want a print? Email me!
