Oktoberfest 2013

  • Locking horns
  • Whiteface

    Facing the opposite direction as the previous photo, the view of Whiteface from Little Whiteface.

  • Horn artwork

    Very pretty!

  • Up the cloudsplitter!

    Can't beat that view! This is why I love the Adirondacks.

  • Tribute

    A tribute to soldiers of a local division in WWII, a gift from Italy.

Every October, the ski resort at Whiteface Mountain has a small Oktoberfest. Traditional German music, food, beer, and demonstrations are featured, and many local vendors come to show off their homemade crafts.

This is the first time I've gone in many years, and the first time I went being older than 21! It's a ton of fun and is definitely worth checking out if you're in the area during the skiing offseason.

Exploring Benson Mines

  • Another office.

    Some sort of office area, completely rotted out.

  • Garage Door

    Outside view of another building showing the decay of the area.

  • Entrance

    Entrance to the facility - and my car!

  • No Entrance

    Back door to the machine shop.

  • Machine Shop

    Judging from the abundance of 440 volt hookups in the building, this likely was some sort of machine shop.

Benson Mines is a long-abandoned iron mine near Watertown, NY. The mine was shut down in 1978 and the buildings and have been completely abandoned ever since. Abandoned man-made structures are my favorite to take pictures of, so I couldn't resist exploring!
