The powerplant and its dedicated water tower supplied steam for heating and mechanical work.
Reflections of graffiti during spring melt.
National Mine and its rockhouse (?) as seen from Mammoth Hill. From this angle, I am fairly certain this was a crushing and sorting house. The bottom looks like it has two aerial tram doors as well.
