Over the summer, I took a trip up to the abandoned Iron Mountain Ski Resort, an old Ski Resort up Highway 88 in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Iron Mountain was a reverse ski resort; you started at the top, skied down, and the lifts brought you back up to the base lodge. The buildings have long since started collapsing, as you can see in the background of the picture below, and people have started dumping trash at the site.
As always, I welcome your comments, criticisms, and compliments on the pictures. I just purchased a new f/1.8 50mm lens and cannot wait to get out there with it to check out what fun I can have with it.
