At the Entry
Carl and I wearing our DUI gear at the silo entry point.
Down the Hole
We have to carry our gear, not to mention ourselves, down this hole.
Super Mario Pipe
We're going down that??
This is the tunnel from the entry point we walked down to reach the silos.
The entrance to Silo #1 is just beyond this hole. We did not dive this silo.
Entrance to Silo #1
Another view of the entrance to silo #1. It was not safe for us to dive this closer silo.
Party House Next Left
Some interesting graffiti on the surface.
This is a view from the upper part of the complex, looking down to our dive entry point, near the platform.
Entering the Silo
Note that the door is solid concrete.
Carl acknowledges the camera before entering the silo.
The Party Room
Formerly known as the power house.
Power House Entrance
Power House Dome Roof
The white stuff are sound baffles.
At one time, each of these concrete bases had a massive diesel generator on them.
The exhaust tunnel leaving the power house.
Hole in the Floor
Looking down through a hole in the concrete floor down to the (flooding) sub-floor.
I'm not sure what these were used for. The ladder goes up to the exhaust tunnel (seen in previous picture)
Under the floor
My fellow dive buddy and dive master examine the junk in the subfloor level of the power house.
Groundwater leaks into the power house.
This insulation was all over the place. Full of asbestos, I'm sure.
Some people are in view here to give you an idea of scale. It was a huge dome. The air intake tunnel is on the far wall.
Censored to maintain the G rating.
Examining the Power House
I was standing on the main floor, looking down to the sub-floor.
