Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is a repost... I did a search but it didn't come up with anything. I was here quite some time ago when I took these pics. Enjoy!

I thought that front door looked familiar.

What route did you take onto the roof? Everything I saw looked pretty sketch.

It was all pretty sketchy. I think the worst part was walking around on teh roof, some of the areas were really soft. We stayed along where the beams joined the roof and where it seemed firmest. We ended up climbing up through the middle of the building and then up an old sketchy ladder. I'm a wimp though, so it couldn't have been that bad XD

I'm pretty sure the jars contained homeless person spleen, but I have no way to prove that.

The reason why it looks like a sawmill in some of the photos is that the last use of the building was to cover over a sawmill

I really need to go visiting. We were within a couple clicks of here ~1 month ago, but I was busy trying to kill paper. (apparently, I'm still OK with that).

That would have freaked me out. Unstable floors give me the heebie jeebies.



You could probably sell it to the local visitors as part of an emergency outdoor survival kit. Heh.

Sure did! I agree, too sketchy. Sometimes in the heat of the moment tho... hahah. I used the same excuse after investigating a mine shaft near Osoyoos. There was a second floor down below, with a ladder down and on the bottom floor there was a track leading into the dark. It was SUPER COOL but we didn't go down there. It was just way too iffy. Next time I went there (about 2 years later) it had collapsed. *eep*
