I recently had the opportunity to explore the Warner & Swasey Observatory with a group of dedicated urban explorers. I appreciate their willingness to invite me along and to enter those near-dark rooms first. I'm fairly adventurous but there's something about walking into the pitch black rooms of an abandoned building that causes me pause. But I quickly adjusted and ventured off on my own and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This place has a rich history as part of Case Western Reserve University's School of Applied Sciences and deserves a little respect. She has been ravaged by weather and scavengers but she still stands at the top of a hill facing proudly into the heavens.
