A Creek for the Copper Mines

Today's flow of Owl Creek has been irrevocably shaped by yesterday's mining activity. It starts with a few marshy ponds high up on Keweenaw Ridge, but as soon as the creek pours over it's first waterfall the water is swallowed up by old adits and fractures. Much of the creek then flows through the shafts of the mines before bubbling out far downhill over the sands of long-lost stamp mills.
