Beautiful Erosion of Norwegian Ghost Mine

From my buddy Claes Pettersson, pix he took in July at the abandoned Christian VI mine of Røros, Norway, at 62°N. It’s a copper mine that was worked from 1723 until shortly after 1945. Located near the Swedish border and far from the sea, this is one of the coldest parts of Norway, which means that the wooden structures don’t decay much through microbial action — they mainly just erode. via aardvarchaeology
