Some Friends Explored an Abandoned Missile Silo. What They Found is Nightmarish.

There are things you see in movies that you would never do in real life. Near the top of that list might be exploring dark, creepy, and abandoned places. That’s exactly what these friends decided to do.

Last week, a group of friends thought it would be a good idea to explore an abandoned Titan I Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) silo in the Colorado countryside. To say these pictures are creepy is a vast understatement. Just wait until you see the “hydraulic fluid” they found.

Update (06/03/2015):

The Russian writing on/near the doors may indicate that this isn’t a Titan silo but a Russian one.

Here are the friends approaching the entrance to the silo. This is already getting creepy.

The Titan I ICMB was an important player in the early Cold War. It was capable of delivering a nuclear payload anywhere in the world.

Because of the age of the silo, everyone had to wear masks to keep from breathing in asbestos.

Entering the silo. Talk about creepy. This would be about the time I turned around and went home.

At one point, they came across this. It looks like blood at first, but turns out it was just hydraulic fluid. Or at least that’s what we all hope it was.

That last section was really similar to what one man found in an abandoned German bunker… Inside were doors like you would find in a bank vault seemed to be torn from their hinges.

This could have very easily turned into the true story for a very creepy horror movie. Luckily, no one was hurt and nothing too creepy happened. I just hope that it was just hydraulic fluid. Either way, I don’t think I’ll be visiting this part of Colorado anytime soon.
