The layout and design of the buildings reminded me strongly of a brewery or distillery. To the right you can see some of the retrofits by the first lumber company to buy the buildings, in the 1970s.
Looking out from what little remains of the second floor at the poor house, which was in terrible condition. No roof and no floors. Soon to be ruins.
The Clipper was one of the most popular Packards, but its production was cut short by WWII. Had they produced the car instead of Rolls Royce plane engines I imagine there would might be driving a Packard today, rather than a Ford.
Looking through Workhouse A from the top of a silo.
SFAAP’s iconic smokestacks. You’d notice if you drove past this on the highway.
Core samples archived under the laboratories.
One of the covered rail loading docks. All of them were overgrown and rust-clad.
Between the ice chute and the back of the north section of the cellars, a little pillar shows where a room used to be. The ceiling’s disintegration has since filled the space, which seems to be the last point of expansion in the cave–this was last carved in the mid-1840s.
The Big Dipper brought its friends into view, and the best seat is 80-feet up.
