Ancient Ruins Series Continues

I wanted to continue on with the ruins of a building I found while on a walk with my wife and kids. Standing back to give you a bigger perspective on the area the building is sitting in. I mentioned a river it was built along, this river is in Hastings and empties into the Mississippi River not too far from here. I recall a comment a couple posts ago about how could they let the building stand in fear it will fall on someone. I can honestly say, that thought had crossed my mind when I was standing inside of the building remains.

I would like to return to this site when the sun is nearly setting and the river waters have warmed up a bit more. Looking back on the first two photos of this site, the sun setting with a reddish tint in the sky, standing in the water on the other side of the river bank near the beaver! Did you see that beaver over there on the east side of the bank? Throw in a bit of river water reflection. I can picture the shot in my mind, but I need to be there at the right time and I do need a replacement camera. I brought my broken camera along to the Breakfast Club gathering and described what I did to break the LCD screen.

Tomorrow I will give all of the details on this site that I can find.

That is an impressive photograph and I enjoyed reading your narrative.

Have your ever seen the top of two Hondas?

Interesting! I guess this was a mill of some kind?

Oh, and it took me a few minutes (sadly), but I was able to find the beaver...

ding! ding! ding! It was a mill, a flour mill to be exact. There was a dam built across the river, but it is completely gone.

And congrats on spotting the beaver!

Is this by the Vermmillion River?
