The Widow Jane Mine in Rosendale

IMG_0857 2
A very cool and under-publicized roadside attraction is the Widow Jane Mine in Rosendale, N.Y.

Limestone from the mine helped build the foundations for the Brooklyn Bridge, and the entrance to the poorly marked site refers to that connection.

Even saw several birds and heard a distant Barred Owl (in an inaccessible location).

My Monday Morning Mystery will feature a nest from that mine...
