Biking Past Bunkers Because of the dangers of storing the materials to make explosives as well as the explosives themselves, there were earthen bunkers all across the plant like this. Similar Images ...based on the tags: bikes, bunkers, clouds, pipes, shacks... The perfect place to have a post-industrial picnic. Bits and things in a pile in the corner of the smelter, the unsold chunks of industrial history that didn’t sell at an on-site auction before my visit.

The superstructure for the sea-leg skyways serves no purpose now… the offices are bricked up, too. Why? Standing atop the dust collector, the factory breaks down into diverging patterns, processes. Outbuildings near the perimeter fence. Beyond is all ranch land.
