The fam and I went up to Independence Mine yesterday. Independence is a mine that has been closed since 1951 and had been left almost the same way as when everyone left. There are a few buildings that they keep restored slightly, but otherwise most are falling apart. It was much different the last time I was up there some 30 years ago.
I love finding the old rusty bits of equipment and chipping paint, old windows and doors. There isn’t a creepy feel to the place really, the surrounding view doesn’t allow for it, but it can be claustrophobic when the fog rolls in.
Here are a few photos, the rest can be found over on my Flickr page.
