An old Orchard farm that I acutally remember visiting back in grade 1 with my class. Not sure when it was abandoned, but I just noticed it boarded up this year. Whoever was living in it must have been a heavy smoker though, at least thats the impression I get looking at the marks left behind on the walls. P.S I took these pics at night with flash so they aren't the best looking, but they are clear!

odet27 I prefer going at night! It adds an element to the exploration that can only be achieved with darkness! However, the pictures obviously suffer as the trade off..

superss Too bad, that was a neat old property & orchard. Probably just end up as a big rectangular warehouse.

Finz519 construction workers were unloading heavy equipment as I drove past. It looks like demolition will be starting very soon.

trailblazer519 There's so many around now everywhere. I had to stop on a dirt road last week to let a bunch cross. One turned towards me and spread his tail feathers, I didn't get my camera ready in time to capture it. Deer too. Don't take your eyes off the road at night.
