Hi guys, first off I have to apology for haven’t posted anything on the blog for the past three weeks. I have been very busy with school, clubs, and work. Today, I’m writing a short post with mostly photos to share with you guys about my adventure of exploring the abandoned Damen Silos. What got me in urban exploring was back in winter break if you guys remember, my friend and I we went to explore this abandoned amusement park called NaraDreamland in Nara, Japan. Ever since that exploration, I got hooked into urbex. This past Saturday I took the opportunity of not having work and went down to explore Damen Silos.

Damen Silos is relatively easy to get to by public transit. It is just a short 10 minutes walk from Ashland stop on the CTA Orange line. Besides the one you haven seen above already, below are 24 selected photos out of 160 photos I took when I explored Damen Silos.
