Dugway Proving Grounds

Monday, 17th July 2006 by

Surrounded on three sides by mountain ranges, this is the eerie and desolate Dugway Proving Grounds, a large-scale biological and chemical agent testing grounds south of Salt Lake City, Utah. The US has tested all sorts of nasty things here over the last 65 years including flame throwers, chemical spray systems, biological warfare weapons and toxic agents.

Encompassing around 32 3200 km², there's a large area of high-resolution imagery to the east which contains various empty structures including this spooky-looking thing.

Here's some links for you: The Dugway Official Site, some ground level photos of the area and of course the obligatory Wikipedia page!
