Beautiful Mills on our Rivers

Post by Iasgair »

I saw Duebel's post on Below the Fulling Mill, and when I see things like that it makes me think of an area well known here in my state. So I e-mailed Martin and shared some pictures with him of a mill here in our mountains, and he suggested that I share these photo's. The actual mill is gone now, but the building that still stands was the compressor station that used a water turbine to drive an air compressor to mine for ore.
I have been to this area in Marble many times and every time I have to stop and see this place, and let me tell you that photo's do not do it justice.
Just my opinion, but this has got to be the most beautiful area in Colorado.

I did this in hoping all of you will share photo's of old buildings on your rivers or lakes and or lochs. I'd love to see them because for one; they are beautiful, and two; I love historical places.

Enjoy the seasonal photo's.
By the way, the fishing isn't bad either.

Crikey that building looks a bit precarious :Hide: but the pool below the falls looks mighty fishy?

The mill was built in 1892, and by 1893 the silver ran out. By 1915, the towns population was only 15. There are still buildings in the town of Crystal, just a short drive from the mill, and people still live there, but only during the summer months. Nice little ghost town.

Might that be near Marble Canyon?

My wife and I did a bit of exploring around there if it is during 1982.

We had a brand new Kawasaki GPZ 550 loaned to us by Kawasaki Motors Corporation in Santa Monica, LA.

Spectacular scenery.

Yes, it is near Marble. Lovely scenery and the fishing is top notch. There's a fantastic short video on the scenery in the area and I would love to post it here, but in the video it caught me by surprise when the narrator said, " Mother Nature doesn't give two honey badger s***s about photography ", and I find that not appropriate for this forum. I did not expect the narrator to say that.
But if you want to see the video I will send it to any of you who ask.

Though this five minute video is pretty good showing the drive from Marble to Crystal.
