I love abandoned structures. Have I said this before? I’ve tried to decide exactly why it is that they are so intriguing to me. I think that one facet is the history, both the known and unknown. The other thing that I love about abandoned structures is the interaction between human elements and the natural elements that takes place as the one melds into the other.
Recently, a friend took me exploring through some cabins and abandoned structures near Neihart, MT. As we were hiking up to the site, thunder started echoing in the distance, and by the time we arrived at the main attraction, we were both drenched. Unfortunately, we were not able to shoot as many exterior photos as we had intended. However, it was the interiors that were simply fantastic anyway!
Enclosed are just a few shots, first of an outlying cabin/shed, and then of the interior of one of the larger mining homes.
