Ironton, CO

Ironton is one of the many ghost towns in the San Juan mountains, it sits at about 10,000 feet elevation and is just a short distance off of U.S. 550 between Ouray, CO and Red Mountain Pass. Ironton originally known as Copper Glen began in 1883, and the last inhabitant died in the mid-1960's. This photo is one of the many buildings left standing. I left only foot prints and only took photographs.

This photo and the last couple were taken on my current road trip, feel free to check out Scoot'n Art for more details, link is on the right.


Canon S5 IS converted to IR. 1/60 @ F43.2 ISO 80. Red and Blue channels swapped.
