    Default Where in Calgary #37

    So after a 5 year hiatus, a second in the series on the same day.

    Where in Calgary #37

    Actually, this one is not in Calgary but is very nearby - one can actually be standing in Calgary and get as close as one can get to it legally. I happened to be out exploring because that's something I do and happened upon this odd building, one picture it from my potato cut, cropped, etc, and the other a screen scrape from Google Maps satellite view. I have not a clue what the site is used for, one can not get near it and any signage is quite faded to the point of almost being unreadable.

    So kudos to whomever knows where it is but even more kudos to whomever knows what it is being used for.

    Nah, you can stand in Calgary and look at it a half mile away just past the city's boundary. I think the faded sign said something about radioactivity.

    Well now this old fart knows, kind of a funky/sinister looking site. Looks like something that one of Austin Powers enemies might use as a home base.
