A warning sticker on the interior of a dredge once tied to the old dock.
The great stenciled number on this chute caught my eye.
Two signatures complement this gorgeous hand-painted sign. ‘Bowers’ from 1987 and ‘Normal’ from 1982. The blocking on the letters is still visible!
I found a meth lab in this building once. (Yes, I called it in.)
In the nitrating house.
The conveyor belt prevented cranes from accessing the left side of the dock, so cranes were mounted to the gantry crane to maintain the ore chutes on the side.
The top of Dock 4 was too dangerous to explore, but this panorama gives you an idea of the view (and how rotten the wood was).
One of the storage bunkers was cracked open. I wonder how effective this heavy door would actually be… I expect, not very.
Looking into the Argo Tunnel at its Idaho Springs portal. I was hoping to see tracks and a steel door, but found a busy crew of environmental workers installing a pipe between the bulkhead and new water plant.
