Photo Spot Details
Ironton consists of a few dilapidated buildings that once were the center of a town during the 19th century mining boom. You can get interesting photos of the insides through the windows, but it would be unsafe to try to enter. The largest building was the courthouse/school, and seems the best maintained from the outside. In late afternoon you can see the glowing peak of Red Mountain above the trees.
In autumn, probably the last part of September, the Aspen trees put on quite a colorful show.
You can walk down behind the town a few yards to Red Mountain Creek.
