When I first saw Ogilvie’s from the ground, I promised myself to look back when i found my way into this little pitched outcropping which seemed to have the best view of Thunder Bay I could imagine. It turns out, though, that there is no floor in that section; it is just extended machine access! Oh well. Mount McKay in the background in the last light.
I love the ghost sign across these two elevators, originally built as Superior Elevator. It’s looking pretty rough.
Wyoming has Montana’s ‘big sky’ reputation truly challenged.
Near Howardsville, Colorado, the Animas River gets quite wide. This is near the Little Nation Mill, which is worth a stop if you’re traveling north from SIlverton. It’s also near the former Gold King Mine, which “blew” in 2015 and flooded the Animas River with toxic mine water.
Trees between duplexes overshadow the buildings they were planted to shield; revenge for the boards on the windows.
I wonder if these windows were bricked after the 1950 explosion with the hopes that, if another silos blew, the people in this office would be better protected.
Steam pipes snake up the walls like vines, but with asbestos.
One of my favorite images from my stay… Note the snowed-over road in the distance! This is looking toward Animas Forks.
When I see this picture, I imagine that I am an ant exploring a mushroom farm.
