Playin at the Treadwell Mine

Had yesterday off so went and hiked around the Treadwell mine here in Juneau.  This mine caved in and flooded in 1917. Once a thriving town and gold mine is now nothing more than history in th woods.

  1. Very interesting! I enjoy seeing the contrast between nature and rubble-nice pictures!

  2. Wow! Amazing to see that building in it's earlier form. Gives a whole new perspective to the area. Pretty cool that you found those pictures.
