After making our way off the beach an atop the short ridge backing it, we had found ourselves at the center of an expansive concrete floor. It stretched away from us in all directions, dropping off to the lake behind us backed by high concrete walls in front of us. Scattered across its surface were concrete monoliths of varying size and shape. These were sure to have once supported large pieces of equipment such as stamps, jigs, and wifley tables. Crisscrossing around our feet were trenches of various sizes with numerous small ones intersected parallel rows of larger wood-lined ones. In the end, they all flowed to once place – off the edge into the lake.
The sheer size and scope of the ruins are incredible. Pictures hardly represent the size correctly, but the panoramic photo I put together here should be a start. Enjoy. View Panoramic >
