This isn’t the silo where that girl died. That is a smaller one a few miles away from this one. I remember that story. Actually, I’m pretty sure I posted that news article on UER when it happened come to think of it. I’ll see if I can find it.
I love these silos though. Great views and it’s massive (but also extremely dangerous, probably one of the more hazardous explores in the DFW area due to the hell holes literally everywhere, sketchy ladders, crumbling concrete, etc.). I’ve been here at least half a dozen times but I never get used to that climb to the top. Climbing that freaky ladder while wearing a backpack full of gear and a tripod is always an interesting challenge, lol.
I’ve gotten lots of photos of the vultures too. They have a nest up there at the top towards the center of the structure. I was able to take some pretty cool shots of three of them fighting over territory(?) last time I was there.
Fun fact: I don’t know if this holds true currently, but at one time this was the tallest abandonment in DFW.
