The town of Russell Gulch is so colorful and Monica was up there anyway, so she decided to explore. The picture-taking was a lot of fun, though it would be even more fun to explore the town as a group and maybe even take in a game of disc golf (maybe next year!). It's a place where you could spend all day just poking around.
Monica took the turn down Missouri Flats road and soon found the big open area. Frontenac Mine looked really cool up on the top of the hill, so she turned right at the major intersection and worked her way up the switchbacks. It's a huge mine, but it looks like it's just barely standing. It doesn't look very safe, so it was explored from a distance.
There were so many spurs, and they all looked inviting. She stayed on the most-traveled road, though, and took pictures of the many old mining buildings still left. One even had walls and a roof still, but just barely.
She popped back out onto Oh-My-God Road and continued on. There were so many spur roads! This would be a great area to come explore next year.
