The Lost City of Paris Mine Tipple

I had my heart set on locating the abandoned City of Paris/No. 7 mine. No not Paris France, Paris BC. Never hard of it? Neither had I until I moved to Big White, BC for the Summer and was looking for an urbex adventure. Development of the City of Paris Mine began in 1898 and …

Urbex: The Little Ghost Town of Insinger, Saskatchewan

I was driving to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (say that 10 times fast) to visit some friends. As I traveled down Highway 16, about 55 km on the other side of Yorkton (from Manitoba) when a domed roof of an old Ukrainian Orthodox church peek out on the right side just over the horizon. It was fairly …

Urbex: Exploring a Well Known Meat Processing Plant!

This weekend I did another awesome urban explore at an old abandoned factory in town.  I’m not gonna share the exact location. You may think it’s ridiculous to not share the location of a place you’ve explored. It is an abandoned building after all, what’s the big deal?  The reason I don’t share location information …
