Just the Tipple

I was just driving north of the Black Hills of South Dakota on the Wyoming side of the border when I spotted this interesting structure off the highway and had to investigate.  It’s an old 1800s coal mining structure called a tippel, specifically the Aladdin Coal Tipple which was made into a nice little historical park.

Up top a short path were remnants of the old coal mine with the carts and tracks and the air shaft.  It was fenced off so I didn’t go all the way in, you know, just enough to see what what it was like.  Of course I took the opportunity to show off my shaft!

Just the Tipple!
