Gebo and beyond

This past Tuesday and today we went to Gebo to see the effects of snow on the scenery. After taking a hike around this ghost town, we got back in the car and headed west until we reached another abandoned coal mining operation. Here is the route we took.

The road below heads south.

Driving west, we stopped to see these abandoned structures:

This is the road we took to the bottom of the hill in the distance.

Just south of the building above, we found the sign below which helped us understand the history of this place.

Click on the photographs to enlarge them.

We decided to climb a portion of the hill pictured above.

I built this miniature tower (below) halfway up the hill to say "Kilroy was here." Then we returned home to my wife's mother to relieve the caregiver who was providing a respite for us.
