Birds by dcclark

Some pretty birds, apparently also acting as paintball targets, on the cement ruins at the Champion Mill in Freda, Michigan.

I've always wondered about the uses of ruins in the Keweenaw. The graffiti seems to be a "just for fun" sort of thing, as compared to the way that graffiti is used for communication purposes in more urban areas.

Similarly, paintball and airsoft are common uses. This makes sense, despite the fact that I really dislike the results.

The main thing which bothers me is that I'm interested in these ruins for their own sake -- and graffiti, paintball, airsoft, and people wandering around and kicking bits over don't help make it any easier to visit and enjoy these wonderful sites!
