Canada Trip, Part 10

An abandoned building at Leicht Collieries.

The highway passes nearby...

Leicht Collieries

Driving west toward British Columbia, I stopped at an historic site known as Leicht Collieries. At one time, it was closely related to the coal mining industry, but went out of business after World War I. Of course, I love old buildings, ruins, abandoned highways, and forgotten places. I always try to imagine what the world was like when those places were at their height. I also wonder, if we walked away from our cities today, like the Mayans did a thousand years ago, what would the ruins look like in 100 years? Or even a 1000 years from now?

More to come...
