This stone work is very similar to that on my home, which here in the Gogebic Range was popular from the later 1800's through the 1930's. The Quincy Mine North of Hancock also owned the dredge I have frequently photographed near Lake Linden. There are many relics here, including the remains of an ore hauling train and tracks. Tours for trolls in the summertime. My brother and I did not use snowshoes as there were some snowmobile tracks that packed the snow to many of the ruins, but he ventured off the trail once and had a hell of a time getting out when he sunk to his ass. I had forgotten how much fun it is to compose on the ground glass in a waist level finder, like all those years with Hasselblads and one other Rollei. Using a square format can either be limiting or liberating, depending on how you see. For me, it has always been the later.
