    The thing is most of Penn is abandoned industrial or urban areas that nature has reclaimed. So you're exploring the best of both worlds. Jim Thorpe Pa is my example... I like it there. Mt Penn Reserve in Reading Pa also. Bettis trails Mckeesport PA....

    Come to Montreal, we have many ruins that are still in service... DO NOT STOP ON BRIDGES AND OVERPASS.

    there's something similar to that down here, the bridge to nowhere in Whanganui National park.
    It was built in the 1930's to service a small town the government tried to create for returned servicemen that they gifted land to farm.
    Was such a hard place not a single farm survived. now there's just a few scattered relics randomly in the bush..... in the end the rainforest down there always wins. Pretty cool MTB track though!
