|Why do we go there? Because it's just so damn
interesting. I mean, who knew such a place existed, and
especially in boring 'ol PA? It's much like your site
says, you can quite easily pass right through it without
even realizing it... but it really is an interesting
place. One thing I would like to mention about it that
you didn't mention on your site (maybe you weren't
affected?) is that spending even a small amount of time
there in proximity to the vent holes will have negative
effects on your health, particularly breathing and
throat problems. We spent about 30 minutes up in the
area around the vents, on the hill (where the cemetery
featured in the pics I sent is), and after we left
everyone was complaining of sore/scratchy throats for
the following hour or two.
I've been considering some method of avoiding this
the next time we visit... perhaps something like
wearing painters masks, but I'm not sure how much
those would even help.
We plan to spend a lot more time there this coming
trip. This trip, we just stopped by Centralia on our
way between a wedding and the reception.
I'm glad someone put such time and dedication into
giving Centralia a presence on the web, and I hope the
pictures are something you can use.
