but the hills and sky in the background make it look like paradise...
It does look like paradise. I wonder if the miners thought of it that way? Or were they blind to the surroundings?
I wonder how long ago that mine was in operation? Love your description today, Barb. :)
Beautiful hills in the background ... and I would love to have some of that precious aged wood!
So indicative of the early history of this north western part of the country. The colours and the texture are beautiful, but the image your words describe are so hauntingly familiar, Barb.
The west is amazing in how many abandoned mines and milling operations one finds in the most inaccessible spots.
your photos have a distinct dreamy-light quality about them. I'm wondering if it's the elevation? no, I betcha it's your eye, on second thought. an apt description of the mining remains, this is a lovely stone. thanks for sharing. I'm enthralled by your writing.
We have so many mines around here, too. Abandoned portals into the earth...
Difficult to imagine what this mine has seen - hopes turned to dispair, for some a bonanza - difficult lives.
Your comments are always one good thing for me!
