It's been a while since I last posted anything over here, mainly because I hit a major dry spell between the summer and the holidays (which, i know, is like half of the year), but finally managed to get to a few stops during the actual few weeks of holidays towards the butt-end of 2016. Right around Christmas, i popped into an old home i'd had my eye on for a while that ended up being a total non-event. So much so that I didn't even take a single picture. Spent about ten minutes there and decided it was a bust...then set my eyes on a bigger prize.
I had seen a place that i'm sure many of you folks here will recognize once you see the pictures, and have been meaning to get to it on my semi-annual drive by it on New Year's Eve. We're talking about a former chemical/fertilizer plant up here in the Northeast part of the state that sits on a stretch of nothing highway surrounded by tiny towns and big pastures of cows. Thanks to a some additional info from the ever-helpful Dee, i was off to check it out.
This place was massive, and I ended up logging over 3 miles of walking once all was said and done. I could have easily spent all day at this place, but only had a few hours. It was a real treat to explore, as there was no real threat of interruptions and I felt like i could just take my time. Even given that, i still rushed around because of the sheer size of the place. If you haven't been, i highly suggest a trip.

But, here are a few of my favorites:

there's a door here somewhere:
