These Abandoned Places In Denver Are Absolutely Haunting

It’s hard to explain why we love and are fascinated by abandoned places and urban decay. There’s something so apocalyptic about them and so haunting. As if everyone at once stood up and walked away, leaving open drawers and overturned coffee mugs amidst shattered glass and broken dreams. (Dramatic, I know.)

But seriously, there’s something so utterly eerie yet oddly hopeful about industrial wastelands. Something that reminds us of the inevitably fleeting nature of life and the importance of seizing each and every moment in it. These stirring images of the (now demolished) Gates Rubber Factory in Denver and the (former) Amalgamated Sugar Company just east of Longmont will leave you with all the spooky feels.
