HI all... I snuck in to what's left of the cool 'industrial wasteland' site below U of P last week. They have torn down most of it and its all fenced off, but there is a large hole in the fence down the train tracks. I don't know how much longer the main building will be there, but the inside is still accessible...but you have to climb over a lot of rubble.

if you want to shoot down there...get down there quick

here's a stitched panorama taken with an 85mm at 1.8
you can see whats left

be sure and view at a larger size to get a better feel

I snuck into that site way back when I was a teen. In fact I made a video for my high school Spanish class down there . . . a few years ago ;->

Thanks for the update... I really wish I had made it out there more often.

Yeah I noticed this from the train the other day as I was crossing the bridge. The smokestack is totally gone too. Looks like the remains of the last building will be gone within a few weeks.
Wow, there have been a lot of really great photos taken at that place... Let's all bow our heads and reflect on the good times we had... (sniff... snort)
