While walking out I snapped this last shot of the sunset drenching the castle-top watertower (staying with the theme), right before the sun dipped below the hill across the stream from which the whiskey was distilled.
2013. A perfect summer day meets a beautiful old roundhouse on the edge of town.
Above Treasure Mountain Mine is the capped shaft of the defunct San Juan Queen Mine. This is taken near that location, looking down the road that connects the mines to Animas Forks.
Two charmers, I’m sure. This area was a coal pit for the nearby power plant.
Looking out across the elevator row from Portland Huron’s roof. Don’t you love the color of the sky?
The same view in 2007. Superior, WI, some have said, is a suburb of Duluth, MN. It’s more like a sub-suburb, I would argue. It’s the industrial district that is technically in another state, one that sells beer on Sundays. Perspective is looking out of the mostly-disassembled larger (newer) elevator.
My first picture at Nopeming, sometime around 2004. The same year that the county stopped mowing the lawn.
Taken from the arm of the pocket loader–note the tree growing out of the conveyor belt. Often where you see old piles of taconite, trees are springing up. The byproducts of the pelletization process break down and make a really fertile mix, especially with all the iron content!
The remains of the site radar beside the command building.
