An abandoned shack in the Creston Valley, BC



Oops - I misspelled dilapidation. Could one of the moderators correct that for me?Thanks.

Good to see you back, Toshi. We are seeing quite a few old regulars coming back in recent weeks. That's great.

An interesting shot of an old building site. Dilapidation is evident in the shed. I'm not sure what to make of that concrete pad. Is that the remains of an old building that has been removed or is a pad where the building was never built? Due you know anything about it?

Cal

Thank you, Cal. It's good to be back. The concrete pad is all that's left of an industrial building that was torn down many years ago.

Toshi,

Wow, graceful dilapidation in absentia. That's a a new twist.

Seriously, the standing building hints at being dilapidated but I wold have given a ransom to see the older building now in absentia.

Aloha

Emplacements like that are in evidence all over hilltops in the UK. They're relics of WW1 & WW2, and they're the bases for wooden buildings that housed troops manning lookout posts and/or guns in strategic positions with a good view.

I like them, because they provide excellent camper van parking places with the very best views, at the lonely ends of often difficult mountain roads.

Concrete rots more slowly than wood. What will future (>1000years) generations make of them? If we sort ourselves out in time, that is.
