The iconic outline of a prairie sentinel. Quintessential rural industrial architecture.
The old boilers of the steam plant have been mostly gutted to remove loose asbestos.
Looking through the old brewhouse toward the Keg Wash House.
The Brown Hotel still stands, but has recently gone out of business again. One of the nice things about historic buildings in New Mexico, though, is things tend to stay around a lot longer than if they were subjected to lots of rain and snow. It will probably be reopened eventually.
A tunnel between the outside gate and the courtyard shared by the barracks.
Looking through a launcher doorway at an outbuilding… the fire truck garage, if I recall correctly. Fomapan medium format in Pentax 67.

I didn’t test the rungs, but I bet the view was incredible.
