I was almost certain an animal or human was waiting to attack. :) Luckily, the only creature we saw was a stray cat.
There were many large bags of abandoned supplies, several of which were opened and spilling out. In one area, the particles had formed crystallized looking growths.
Despite being a brick factory, there weren't too many leftover bricks. They must have been stolen as there was evidence all over of previous explorers. In one room, I noticed what I thought was bullet shells on the ground. This Texan has never shot a gun, so I can only assume what bullet casings look like based on movies I have watched. Ha! There was a target taped to one of the bags as well as an empty case of beer on the other side of the room. I only hope the two were not from the same explorer.
One of my favorite things about this building was all the light peaking through windows and around corners. It left a very ethereal vibe.
On the way home, I stopped at one of our local lookout points. I am always amazed at how beautiful our city view is from up here!
Having grown up in a dry flat climate, I can definitely appreciate all the water and hills! To me, they are mountains no matter what the locals think.
