February 2007 Archives
Last weekend, I revisited one of my favorite hiking trails for the first time in nearly five years. Along the trail, nestled in a canyon, are the remnants of a World-War-II era "settlement for German Americans." It was a completely self-sustained community with stables, gardens, and a power generation facility. After these National "Bocialists" moved out, it became a commune. Now it's just a rotting, mangled mess that seems to attract a never-ending parade of taggers. The above photo is a close-up of one of the steel beams that formed the walls. Click below for more metallic carnage, sans comments (I'm not feeling well today).
