kind of tall, isn't it?
Gary stands at the Base of the Troy Smelter

where's the ax??
The Road to the Mine is fast becoming overgrown

Several buildings that were hidden by trees and bushes have burned.  The spring now parallels the road to the mine and overgrowth will eventually block access to the mine.   During the 2011 revisit, we finally discovered the Troy cemetery.   If you want to see the cemetery, you must hike in.   The road no longer exists.

can you find the explosives sign?
Explosives for the Mine were stored in this Building

As of 2011, our shade Tree has fallen
