Main Gate Tunnel
As we enter the mill, we must use the tunnel that travels from the parking lot of the dispensary underneath Interstate 25. Every day, thousands of workers would enter and exit the mill through this very tunnel. Today, the tunnel still exists, but it sits abandoned and unused. Now that we're in the mill, we can visit either the rail mill or blast furnace first, or go back to the parking lot if you prefer.
