This is the view looking west northwest up the Red River, from the middle of the Star Mine suspension bridge. Calm, and promising a hot, clear day.
One of the few remaining bits of evidence of the existence of the mine is this structure sitting at the top of one of the low hills.
The photo below tells the short history of the bridge – which was used to transport men and coal from a mine on the other side of the valley to the rail lines on the other.
The bridge itself was fun to cross. The photo below is on the mine side; the sign asks you not to swing the bridge and to keep the load below 20 people.
