Urban / Rural Exploration in Alaska
This website is infrequently updated these days. The author has moved to the Midwestern US (and has some Midwest UE stuff here, also rarely updated).

The site went down for a while in 2011 and is slowly being ressurected from ancient backups. Be warned: ahead lies high-school level humor, late-90s animated GIFs, and really bad hand-coded html!

If you notice any problems, broken links, missing photos, etc, please email freak74 gmail com.

Alaska has much more to offer urban explorers than one might think. Abandoned mines, military bases, industrial areas, drains, and even college steam tunnels can all be found in this state. This website presents a few such places, and documents various expeditions and discoveries that have been made. Click on the large headers of each section for general info and pictures of each venue, or go straight to the location of your choice by clicking on the appropriate small link.

Anyone can explore the great outdoors, but sometimes it's fun to infiltrate artificial structures and see what few others do.

Site News: descriptions of latest updates

It's 2010, where's my damn flying car? At least we found an abandoned mountaintop suburb where time stands still.

As of 11/2009 we are in fact still alive, we just suck at updating.

6/6/06 or something like that.
Grad School in Minneapolis
A whole seperate section full of midwestern UE.

Added all these pages from a recent vacation:
New Mexico 2005
Arizona 2005
San Francisco Bunkers
Santa Cruz Tunnels
California Mine
Also fixed the Chicago page to link to all three sub-pages instead of just two.

Added the Cleary Hill Mine

Added the dissapointing and not-very-exciting TVRR swamp hike

Added a bunch of stuff:
Windy Bridge, new Treadwell photos, and the Hellshaft.
Added the Hi-Yu mine (No I don't know who named it that).

Added the rusty remnants of the glacier power plant and tunnel.

Added an update from a while back, the boat graveyard in Juneau

Added a whole lot more out-of-state stuff, after returning from a two week vacation in the midwest which included
Office Products Expo 1994 in Toronto. I also visited the Twin Cities and Chicago.
