So for a little change of pace, I realized I was short on some of the nuts and bolts I needed to complete the sawmill, so I made a quick trip into Kirkland Lake this morning. Just outside of town I saw a very new roadside attraction, the concrete base was still not fully cured. In keeping with some of this summers posts, I stopped and got a few pictures.
Kirkland Lake was a hockey superstar back in the days when the gold mines were going strong. It is a long list of NHL players who got their start in Kirkland Lake. I guess the thought of working in those dangerous gold mines was a strong incentive for young players to hone their hockey skills.
Here are a few pictures of the new roadside attraction. It is about 18' high and made from different sized squares of stainless steel sheet metal stitched together with weld beads.
