Bethlehem Steel Ξ Industrial Maze
IMG_7913a.jpg

As darkness fell we were able to climb furnace C to explore the maze of stairs and catwalks above us. During my first trip, we were not able to stay late enough to climb up without the risk of being spotted. My only goal for this trip was to climb the furnaces, and the experience did not disappoint. We stood on top of this mammoth machine shivering in the now frigid autumn air as a freight train rumbled slowly down the tracks. It was almost as if the steel mill was active again and the train was delivering a load of raw materials for processing. That moment was what cemented this place in my mind as one of my favorite places of all time.
