Staggering Footage Of An Abandoned Missile Silo Hiding Near Denver

If you have ever traveled east on I-70, you may (or may not) remember passing the tiny town of Deer Trail, which sits a mere 59 miles away from the heart of the city. Known as the “Home of the World’s First Rodeo,” Deer Trail is home to nearly 550 friendly residents, as well as a few restaurants, gas stations, and shops. What you may not realize about this small Eastern Plains town, however, is that it hides an old Titan I Missile Silo.

Thanks to YouTube user TheUnknownCameraman, we can get a firsthand look at this important Cold War dwelling from the comfort of our own well-lit homes:

(Please note: The Missile Silo is on private property, so please contact the land owner before exploring.)
