Mines on Interurban Railroad to Albia


Rudee Blozovich took me in his pickup to drive a quarter mile east from 205th St. on a very rough trail in the woods and fields to find this mine.  I thought he would jostle our teeth out.  There are shale dumps everywhere in the midst of a wilderness of trees that have grown up since it closed.  Much of the shale has been removed.  I took a picture of the remains of a 20 foot high shale pile near the mine tipple.
