Summitville CO by Ken Strasser

From Ken

After a visit to Summitville on the 26th of September, 2011 the decline and weather damage to the site know as Summitville and the adjacent site know as SunnySide have given over to nature.  I suspect within the next few winters none of this will be visible as your initial photos so elegantly portray.  I do not believe it is possible to even walk to the Sunny Side area to photograph the remains there.  It was accessible in 2002 era but not now due to over growth of the vegetation.  The Site know as Summitville is declining rapidly but one can get to it on foot.  The EPA's Superfund Site of Summitville has likewise undergone yet more drainage and contaminated water control and has also changed since 2002.

 Should you desire my photos of my adventure please email me at the inclosed address.
