Entering a Nuclear Cooling Tower

Approaching and then actually walking into a nuclear cooling tower was a surreal experience.  Even though this facility never went “live” there is still an eeriness about the place. “I shouldn’t be” here kept going through my mind, as I continued up the steps and through the heavy metal door into a new world…

Once inside this massive structure it was quite peaceful and unassuming, not at all what I was expecting.  I imagined there would be lots of huge tubes and gigantic pieces of equipment ready to do nuclear stuff. But there was nothing but tons and tons of concrete reaching above me for the heavens.
