George AFB in Southern California

I went down to what's left of George Air Force Base last week and took some pictures. I posted them in my journal with a pretty lengthy commentary, but I figured that for the purposes of posting here, I'd just include the pictures, since so much of what I wrote over there is related to my experience having grown up there when it was still operating.

Sorry the thumbnails are so small. It was a lot to fit in my journal, so I posted them there small. But they're bigger if you click them.

This is the Hospital, which was brand new when the base closed.

The rest of the pictures are from in and around the house I l grew up in.

If you're interested in reading the commentary that went along with these pictures, it's on my website. It's friends only on my LJ, but public on the wordpress site. I didn't include it here because there's a fair bit more than just talking about the base.
