Hey so I have not introduced myself yet. I live in Tualatin just south of Portland Oregon. I love photography. And have been a urban explorer since December 2011. I would love to connect with others close to Portland and explore/take pictures together. Here's some pictures taken in the last couple months. I nearly 9/10 times roll out of the house solo and explore by myself. I much prefer exploring and adventuring with others. Please direct message me, so we can coordinate a time and place to meet one another; and then hopefully after adventurer together. I try to go out at least once a week. I love all types of Urbex. From ruins and demolished remnants to active facilities with power on and humming machinery/production I love it. I also can just as easily go for a hike in beautiful forests and visit some waterfalls and or caves! Yet to explore any mines here in the PNW. P.S I'll be at Mouser Week this year! Sort of excited but more so worried about the logistics since I booked myself a week there. Mostly intimidated about the cold and the likely snow. If any of you live where the event is and are interested in connecting with me please do! I'd love to talk with you!
Are you really up on the crane?
Dang those look like a lot of steps! What the heck is that?
No way that looks insane! Are those chocolate bar assembly line machines? Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory propaganda there?
Is that a drain?
Abando: short word for abandoned structure or complex of multiple abandoned structures/buildings.
Bonus photo. Is that taken outside of Oregon?
Bonus photo not taken in the PNW but included just to show off in my hello/introduction to my arrival to the forum.
I would be more than happy to guide you to the best of what Oregon has to Offer in Urban Exploration point of view. Washington especially Seattle is dope. Vancouver BC Canada, San Francisco, Kansas City Missouri, Cincinnati Ohio, Cleveland Ohio, and New York City are some very special places I have love for in my heart. Sort of random but I just thought I'd throw them out there to any of you just getting into urban exploration. They are urbex wanderlands.
