Jackfish Ghost Town

As is often the case with these things, I wasn't completely sure as to the exact location of this town when I arrived.  In fact, I wasn't completely sure there was even anything left to see.  However, we were on vacation, we were in the area, give or take a few hundred kilometres, why not go take a look.

When we were close to the spot, I decided to park the truck and consider two possible directions we could begin hiking.  One seemed most likely, so I chose to eliminate the other first.  As it turns out, both were right.

We arrived on a bright and sunny May morning, parked and proceeded to the front entrance to begin our tour.  My attention was initially distracted by the person positioned there to check me in and give me instructions before I noticed the sheer magnitude and domination of this entrance.  Of course, that was its design...  Instant intimidation of anyone entering through the massive doors.

While camping at an Ontario Provincial Park, we decided, as we often do, to take a drive and explore the surroundings beyond the park.  On this particular day, the weather was being a little uncooperative, so we didn't mind spending the time in the truck.

So my driving companion (pictured below, waiting patiently in the truck) and I were on our way back from a fairly substantial drive when I spotted this place on the side of the highway. It's rather unique, as abandoned houses go, in terms of its shape and layout.

This was my first exploration with one of my coworkers.

We had set out one day last week to check this place out, but there were others around and we didn't like the look of things. So, on this beautiful, sunny day, we set out to finally get a look inside. We weren't disappointed.
