Amygdaloid Mine

“After passing the old Central Mine location, US41 takes a lonely stroll northward with no signs of civilization – save an occasional logging road – for several miles. It isn’t until you reach the old mining location of Delaware that man reasserts his authority, slicing up the wilderness with several roads and littering the highway with a row of old mining houses. While most would be content on simply driving past and continuing on towards Copper Harbor or Lac La Belle, those historic adventurers among us would prefer to take a side trip down some of those old roads just to discover what there is to discover. If you do you’ll find quite a bit, ruins and remnants of a forgotten era discarded alongside the road like pieces of trash. Most people will miss it but its all right there to be found – just sitting along the road.”
