The Domes

[bizarre_domes2708.jpg]

Casa Grande, Arizona

No, this is not a fleet of UFO's that have landed in the desert. It's an abandoned factory, but one built in a most unconventional manner -- as a series of interconnected concrete domes covered with polyurethane foam. The plant was built in the early 1980's to manufacture electronics circuit boards, but the venture fell through and construction was never completed. Now there's nothing inside the crumbling structures but graffiti, the wind, and the eerie echoes caused by the spherical ceilings ... which lead some people to believe the Domes are haunted!
