    Took these while hiking in Arctic Valley. Upon one mountain top is an old NIKE missle encampment.

    Very nice Gero. I particularly like the color shot down the valley.

    We have old Nike sites around here too, but unfortunately they're still on Federal land and we can't get to them. :( Someday before I die, I hope.

    Thanks guys.

    Vonnagy, I believe that is a secondory exhaust pipe for when a missle was launched, any excess exhaust pressure was routed through it. But I couldnt be sure about it.

    Photobug, In Anchorage there was three sites. This one sits on a mountain top, with nuclear fallout shelters (hospitals and barracks underground), one has been turned into a city park with people forgetting what was there. The third is on the militay base.

    Ok, I love all the pictures but I wanted to say something about that first one. Great eye man... the lighting was perfect to focus all the attention on the flowers and keep the background dark. Great find!
