Our two hour tour begins almost immediately upon arrival. I'm shown here with our tour guide and the following pictures are of the Root Glacier which dominates the landscape.
The glacial silt covers the glacial melt, and although it looks very deep, our guide assures it is only inches to the ice.
The National Park Service has refurbished some of the buildings, however others are being left to the forces of nature.
On top of the old mill, the views are awesome!
We are extremely fortunate to visit the Mill and begin at the top and be able to walk down the many stories and see the entire structure. This is the last year it is open to the public prior to the restoration process beginning next year.
Here I find a shoe that was left when the mine was last in operation, decades ago.
We hear music coming towards us, and look what we find!
Shown next is the restored general store, as it looked back in the heyday of the mine.
Walking along, my eye notices this cloud formation. The sun is disappearing fast!
Back on the road, the inevitable happens - rain!
