A Drone Flew High Above This Abandoned Nuclear Base In Colorado And Caught This Truly Eerie Footage

If there’s one thing we love here at Only in Colorado, it’s abandoned places in Colorado (well, that and hole-in-the-wall restaurants, hikes, and hidden gems in the Boulder State, but we will save all those for another day).

That being said, you can imagine our delight when we came across some stunning footage from an abandoned nuclear base in Colorado. This fantastic video is from both inside and outside a deserted and eerie nuclear base in Colorado. It was uploaded by YouTube user TheUnknownCameraman:

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Pretty creepy, not to mention epic, huh? To learn even more about this fascinating piece of Colorado history, check out this article: What These Friends Discovered Abandoned In Colorado Is Mind-Blowingly Cool.

Abandoned Places in Colorado

December 08, 2021

What are some more cool abandoned places in Colorado?

There are plenty of abandoned places in the Boulder State, all over the state. We have ghost towns galore, not to mention abandoned hospitals and old schoolhouses. Check out these 16 abandoned places in Colorado. Want even more? We’ve got a whole road trip to abandoned places planned out for you. You’ll get to see ghost towns, old mills, and more on this road trip through the state.

What are some haunted places in Colorado?

Many of the abandoned places mentioned above are reportedly haunted! We’ve got a haunted places in Colorado road trip planned out for you if you are a fan of spooky, haunted places. No list of hauntings in Colorado could be complete without the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. This historic (and beautiful) hotel inspired Stephen King to write the novel “The Shining,” though Stanley Kubrick’s filmed version was shot in Oregon.

What are some great videos with drone footage of Colorado?

There’s something so neat about seeing drone footage of places, especially if it’s somewhere you already know and love. There’s nothing like seeing a bird’s eye view of a spot that is familiar from the ground. The different vantage point makes it feel like a whole new world! This is a really neat (and slightly spooky) video captured in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. It’s amazing to see the normally bustling city of Denver so empty (speaking of abandoned places in Colorado, it almost looks like one in that footage!) Here’s a more normal view of the Mile High City, in stunningly high resolution. And if you’re looking for videos that show off the incredible beauty and majesty of our great state, check out this one.
