Thick yellow smoke belches from storm drains. The salt mines tremble. A roar shatters the walls, splitting Mack Ave as the dragon hatches.

1,200 feet below the streets of Detroit is a salt deposit older than the dinosaurs. Covering an area of more than 1,500 acres, the Detroit Salt Mine is closed to the public. Rebecca Mix grew up in Michigan, where her endless (and obsessive) fascination with the ancient salt mines that sit beneath Detroit has continued to grow over the years. // Alex Massey
