Some days I wake up and all I want to do is explore and photograph as many places as I can. This was one of those days. We didn't end up exploring as many places as I would have liked, and to be honest I was somewhat disappointed with my photos; but it was still a great day.
First stop was an old foundry building on the East side. This place is pretty well wrecked. The stairs that I had used last year when I explored the building for the first time were now soft and felt like they were ready to collapse. There was also evidence that someone had recently tried to seal up the building, but they did a terrible job.
The next place we looked at was new to me. I had been wanting to check it out for a while but just never got around to it. It actually proved to be sort of interesting, at least a lot more so than I thought it would be.
The first floor was pretty well torched, as well as parts of the second floor. I remember when this fire happened a few years ago. I think the building was somewhat still in use prior to the fire.
An entire floor full of chairs.
And an entire floor full of decks.
The last place we went was the ruins of an old power plant at the base of a water fall. There isn't much to explore here but walking along the river is really nice and there are plenty of small cliffs and boulders to climb around on.
