Ruff: Revisited

This is Ruffner Mine Number 1.
I was extremely pleased to see that it wasn't completely flooded, and we got to explore most of the mine. LEGENDARY explore, by the way. It is absolutely beautiful inside. There wasn't really anything left behind though, and most all of the rails were gone.

I found some friends. :3 They're so adorable, and of course, we didn't disturb them.

Ruff

Went on a couple of awesomely scenic hikes at Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve.
There's plenty to see here besides nature- things left from the mining days. I highly recommend checking this place out, if you haven't yet.

On this trip, we sought out(and found) a mine.

Random Mix

Went to an abandoned house in northeastern Alabama. Due to possessing an attitude problem, I wasn't quite in the mood for shooting- especially in the presence of an annoying force (I'll leave it at that). As a result, just a few pics from here.

Recently installed aerial coolers at the Colonial Pipeline station in Pelham. CAUTION: Taking photos of this is what the police department calls "weird".
