I really like the way this high-ceilinged room is decaying. Well, decayed. It’s demolished now.
Trees between duplexes overshadow the buildings they were planted to shield; revenge for the boards on the windows.
Looking toward the Quenching Tower from the coal tower platform.
One of my favorite images from my stay… Note the snowed-over road in the distance! This is looking toward Animas Forks.
This mean-looking thing had a purpose, probably, but that function has been lost to decades of expansion.
This ruin was once the Toltec Mine, a producing gold and silver claim that operated into the 1940s.
A creek has cut through the middle of the mine property, washing away the loose rock and eroding the foundations of the Concentrator. It’s pretty, though! It’s be belief, though I cannot prove it, that some of the water here originates from inside the now-buried Santiago Tunnel, which is no doubt flooded to a great extent.
A dead work truck rusts near an outbuilding. Everything is marked with a code. Modernity.
