The Swift Meat Packing Plant Ruins, Part V
Continuing where we left off...

After our "emergency exit" we walked along the outer edge of the complex and took some pictures of the complex.

Gee, we didn't notice that "no trespassing" sign on the way in...

Welcome to the jungle! 

This would make a great location for just about any war movie set in the 20th century.

Alexplored 12/22/03 on a chilly Sunday morning.

Roughly a week later, the day after our car crash, Dani and I went by the same area and also finished exploring the basement of the Spaghetti Warehouse abandonment.  On our way back home, we also passed by the ruins again and took a few more pictures where we were too busy running from vagrants to properly frame our shots before!

This is the side where Dani and I made our hasty escape during our last visit.  Although not obvious as this distance, this entire side is covered with chain link except for the section to the left of the double white doors, which, obviously, is where we climbed out.

A little further down the street is the (kind of) ornate entrance to the ruins.  Actually, this part is locked up. 


Just a few feet further and you come across a wide-open gate representing absolutely no obstacle to members of Generation UrbEx.

There are a pair of thoroughly faded "no trespassing" signs on the right of the frame.

Still further to the right is the end of the complex, backed by railroad tracks.  Here, too, are huge openings through the walls of the complex, although we did not check out this side of things.

Additional details about this location can be found in a more lengthy write-up posted on my Journal page.  Jump right to the account of this expedition here.
