One of my favorite pictures of the tunnel. I am holding a bike rim and wearing a headlamp. My friend triggered the flash just behind my lower back. The fog is a temperature inversion at the entrance of the tunnel; it was 102 degrees outside of the tunnel and about 50 degrees inside, and humid.
A tunnel connecting the two larger caves in the hill; those that Jacob vented in the rear. The vents are still extant!
Looking through the dark door at Shaft 3, when my naked eyes could only make out a staircase lit dimly from above.
On the dark side of the workhouse at sunset, you can almost see where the walls used to be. Kodak Portra 160/Mamiya 6.
A porcelain basin in the locker room is detached, but shows excellent patina. I hope when the machine shop is repurposed that this can be saved.
The Harrison flour mill, completed in 1897 and expanded in 1901 and 1902. The tunnel that I am standing on probably transported grain from the elevator to the mill. Medium Format.
One of my favorite images from my stay… Note the snowed-over road in the distance! This is looking toward Animas Forks.
A divot to let more light and air into the building.
