I first saw this location late last year, but I was in search of a head-frame as listed in the AMIS database. Instead, at the coordinates listed, I found only a clearing made by the lumber company working this area. I went back this spring to have a closer look around and started with the old mill.

I decided that, rickety as it looked, I should climb the remains of the mill to get a closer look at what might remain inside. It was a slow, careful climb, but definitely worthwhile.

As I continued wandering around the property, I kept finding more and more little signs of the activity that was once here.
