My first view of the tunnel was in the dead of winter. In spite of being in the middle of the forest, it was totally silent. Mamiya GA645 / Kodak Pro 400
At night the city lights blast through the broken windows, casting crazy colors through the off-white interior of the mill.
Above my head while taking this picture was the seal of the Department of the Interior.
This tree caught my eye. Note the bench swing near it. Portra 160.
I’m not sure, actually, whether this was an outhouse (right), but it seems likely. In any case, it was connected by a covered staircase to the Bunk House (left). The soil here was not all tailings, so there is a bit of thick grass–almost the only in sight!
The old way to get to the elevator from the mill.
The sidewalks are littered with rocks.
A multi-family home with an attic bedroom. The staircase was unstable, to say the least.
Looking at the huge and modern Cargill B2 from the circa-1919 Lake Superior “I”. This is a rather unique perspective of Enger Tower and Skyline.
