Today I found something that I consider to be really fucking cool. I went off route to go exploring in a little area of the woods that I could tell someone has been visiting as there was disturbance in the ground where they'd been walking. I knew this place existed but I'd never been to check it out before because it's a dead end that takes you down to the bottom of an old quarry type thing. I went for a look to see what I could find and as the picture below will show you, it's pretty cool.
I've been told stories of a homeless guy that we used to see walking around town lived in these woods. I thought it would have just been kids making stuff up, but this makes it a little more believable. I can't see anyone investing time to build something like this in the middle of nowhere unless they needed to. It's the perfect place for someone to say. It's sheltered being in the quarry, there's water just a few meters away and it's hidden. As you approach this thing, you can't even tell it's there. The side I took the photo of is the side you wouldn't see unless you walked around. From the other side, it just looks like a natural part of the landscape.
I'm guessing it has been abandoned because the inside doesn't look habitable any more. There's big rocks lying over the ground and stuff, so it wouldn't be comfortable at all. Wouldn't surprise me if some of the downhill bikers found it and tried to trash it. Unless of course it was them who made it, but judging by the build quality of the jumps they try to build in these woods, it wasn't them.
Anyway, I thought this was really cool. I'd like to find out why it's actually there, but that will be hard.
