Fort Ord, CA

Last January, a few friends and I decided to make a trip to Fort Ord, an abandoned military base on the Monterey Peninsula of California. The 27,827-acre base served as a training ground for soldiers since 1917 (We probably didn't even get through 1/100th of the base). Fort Ord has been abandoned for 10 years, and is currently being turned into a college campus (California State University, Monterey). We were later warned that there are still numerous active land mines scattered throughout the base.

Sorry, in advance, to those with 56k
