A side view of the oven pusher from the ground. The tallest coal bunker looks tiny in the distance, though on the scale of the factory it’s practically on top of me as I’m taking the picture.
A closeup inside the mill’s power room.
Looking toward the Quenching Tower from the coal tower platform.
While it looks like ground level, everything here is one story above the actual earth.
Near the base of the mesa is a modern house, which seems to be a ranch of some sort. What a fantastic spot to live, but for the fact every rainstorm floods the arryos, muddy ditches at the bottom of gullies, making it impossible to travel.
In this ghost town where there were brick, wooden, and dirt-brick buildings, the latter fared the best by far.
On the left you can see one of the later air shafts for the mine below, which allowed for natural air exchange with the main production areas of the coal mine. That is to say, there were no fans blowing fresh air down below.
The ‘working’ part of the furnaces are about a story above ground level, so the catwalks snake above the tree line.
