Looking through the dark door at Shaft 3, when my naked eyes could only make out a staircase lit dimly from above.
Watching the sun set behind downtown Detroit is my favorite memory from the building.
The stairs that connect the breakwater and light station (Leica M6/Kodak Ektar).
The new dining room is still set up for the Twelve Step meetings that took place here a few years ago.
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.
Shuttered windows on the side of one of the collapsing bonded warehouses.
A colorful makeshift wall.
Note the really old carvings in the mineral-stained sandstone on the walls and ceiling. This little cave was walled-off on one end, making me wonder what the area was for. Lighting is a set of three candles and two LED flashlights and a cigarette.
The spiral staircase ends in the basement, where two oil tanks (for the lantern) and a freshwater tank (for the Keeper) were stored. The basement consists of two long arched vaults like this.
