Hospital Smokestack, Heart Mountain Internment Camp, Wyoming, USA

"The smokestack stands as an icon, symbolizing the identity of this historic place.

The hospital complex, completed in 1942, relied on the boiler house to provide steam heat during cold Wyoming weather.  An essential feature of the boiler house, the smokestack stood as the most prominent structure at the center, as it does now.  Of the ten Japanese American Relocation Centers  constructed in the U.S. during World War II, Heart Mountain retains the most intact hospital complex, of which the smokestack is the most distinguishing feature"

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
