Found this on the way to another location. At first I didn't think much of it and just continued my way to the other place, but while I was there, I just couldn't get it off my mind. So I returned and behold in its standing glory.

I was a bit nervous at first because its so close to the road and there is a bunch of workers at the nearby building, but they didn't seamed to mind at all. This place used to make some animal feed by the look of it. When I first got there about 10 pigeons flew away from inside an entry way. I went into another way it seemed to be clear. As I got deeper into the building the smell got worse. It got to the point where I couldn't continue and had to leave the building.

There are some ladders leading to the top of the building, but i didn't climb them because of the nearby people. I most definitely have to return to this place and get to the top, just to see the view. I'm a little worried they might take the place down because it serves no purpose to the nearby company.

UPDATE: Went there at night to see if I could get to the top. Climbed the ladder on the side of the building, leading into a room. This room has the silos and you could fall in and never get out, be careful. Next there was stairs leading up to a small wooden ladder. Now your into a room with barley any space, but there is a ladder at the left side of the room. once you get up there you made it. there is a trap door on the top that was stuck shut but it is now accessible. There are no rails on the roof and some of the floors are starting to rot.

This place is also home to about 6 Raccoon's and Rats. It is covered, I mean COVERED, in Raccoon feces. I couldn't get pictures because it was far to dark to focus. Happy Exploring!
