Well I just took a drive up there today to see if I could snap some pictures. there are nice access roads that they built all around the area. But it is all fenced off around the entire site with barbed wire fencing. I did find an area at an entrance gate that there is a gap between the gate and the ground where you could slide a body through to walk up to the site to snap some pictures. I am from Dickson City, a neighboring town. If anyone is interested in snapping some pictures I'd be more than happy to meet you guys at the Olyphant exit and show you where. I would have snapped some pictures myself, but I did not want to leave my Jeep unattended, nor slide under the fate and walk to the site by myself.
