15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Abandoned Gold Dredge

This is Gold Dredge #5 outside Nome, Alaska. The dredge was abandoned many years ago. It is a very large piece of equipment (the person near the bucket line gives some perspective). Like many other dredges in that area, it operated for a few years and then was abandoned in place.
