Entering Laramie, WY from the south, we found ourselves drawn to a site of an abanoned factory…walking about with camera in hand, it was indeed a photographer’s dream.  Later, we learned that factory, Mountain Cement, was built in 1927 but eventually moved into a newer facility just north of the older buildings…

Currently, it seems to be an excellent site for those who enjoy the game of paint ball as well as for graffiti artists who express their creativity  with concrete canvases.
