Chester Creek Infall, near Duluth’s old Armory. The creek will not emerge again until it is near the Lakewalk.
There are a few campers parked in the abandoned buildings around the NAD. I am guessing that they were once a more secure place to store such things OR they have always been wide open, and this was a quick and free way to dump unwanted toys.
The chapel (left) and surgical suite (straight on) move in an out of view as fog rolls up from the St. Louis River valley.
A broken scale in Isabella A, next to an old wood stove.
Near the old slag dump there are the remains of the pouring buckets that received the molten steel from the US Steel blast furnaces, filled to the brim with pig iron. They must be incredibly heavy!
The historic entrance of the mill, alongside the (relatively) new Great Western offices.

When the bank burned, it was demolished except for the vault, which sits behind the depot.
