Aerial View Of Abandoned Graffiti Highway, Centralia
Here is the aerial view of abandoned highway of the ghost town Centralia. This road is now called graffiti highway or the Silent Hill Road. As you can see, the entire highway which stretches about a mile long is covered with graffiti. This is a very cool sight to view from the air. You can imagine how a mile long road surface serves as a great canvas for local artists. Most of them are about sex, some of them are about aliens and ghosts. These are all understandable because you may see young lovers hiding in the bushes and Centralia has seen a lot of weird activity, including UFOs and even alien abduction.
The city of Centralia is a very unique place to visit with a population of just 10 people. Why? Because a mine fire destroyed the town in 1962. This abandoned highway was once a very busy route 61. And now, you can see that it has bushes and even trees growing all over the median strip and there are large cracks and sinkholes on the road, making it very, very hard to drive. But some people do take their vehicles and drive on this road, just for fun. This place has become a popular tourist destination. You’ll see many people walking it on any given day.
Under this highway and in the surrounding areas, a massive fire is still burning. It started in 1962, about 50 years ago and experts estimate that it will last for another 250 years. People have seen smoke, even flames coming out of the ground from time to time. Sinkholes have appeared suddenly and almost swallowed a couple of people.
Now, my quadcopter is doing about 1000 feet above the ground and you can see the other highway that was built in 1994 and cars are going by. This graffiti highway was closed in 1994 when authorities finally gave up on fixing it.
Here is the massive crack on the highway that made authorities construct an alternate highway. Before this, there were smaller cave-ins and authorities kept fixing it and people were still using the road. But this one is not only big, but also very deep so it became impossible to repair. If you are lucky, you may see smoke coming out of this crack.
The other popular name for this highway is Silent Hill Road or Silent Hill highway. The movie Silent Hill released in 2006 is loosely based on Centralia and this highway has been referred to by these names since 2006.

12 Fictional Places That Actually Exist
The beautiful place where Lord of the Rings was filmed to an island with a unbelievable story behind it these mysterious places are real
6. Danvers State Hospital
All old psychiatric hospitals are creepy. It seems like a rule. If you are going for famous scary, then this state hospital is sure to be on your shortlist. It inspires HP Lovecraft too, but the thing that we are thinking of is the most recent reimagining of the hospital in Batman. This abandoned horror was the primary inspiration for Arkham Asylum. Beautifully rendered in the recent Batman video game, Batman: Arkham Asylum, you can recognize several prominent places in the video game in its real life counterpart. The real life Danvers Hospital kicks its fictional counterparts butt when it comes to scares. At least Danvers is abandoned, unlike Arkham which is still accepting patients. Maybe Gotham wouldn’t have so many crazies if it put some money into making their city terrifying.
This town can be found in Pennsylvania, United States and as of 2013 it only had seven remaining residents. The near constant fog that is swirling around the town is because of a mine fire that has been burning since 1962. The fire burns in the underground coal mines in depths of up to 300 feet over an eight-mile stretch. Estimates say that the fire could continue to burn for up to 250 years. The fire and the constant stream of steam inspired the famous video game franchise Silent Hill and the resulting movies. It’s not hard to see the resemblance with the abandoned and demolished buildings and the steam that rises up from the ground.
Although the star coupled with that island doesn’t exist, the mythology attached to it is quite significant. The Hawaiian people, where the Molokini Island is located, have a rich mythology that doesn’t get the recognition that some other mythologies do. The story goes that the island was a result of a love affair between Molokini, who was a beautiful woman, and a man that was also desired by Pele, the Fire Goddess who created the Hawaiian Islands. Pele cut the woman in half and transformed her into a stone, one-half of her created the island, and the other became a cinder cone at Makena State Park. In real life, the island is a partially submerged volcanic crater that erupted 230,000 years ago. During World War II, the US Navy also used the island for target practice because of the shape that is similar to that of a battleship.
This small town in New Zealand is picturesque enough that it was the filming location for the Shire scenes in The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit series. In the movies, it was home to Frodo, Bilbo, Samwise, Merry, Pippin, and every other favorite Hobbit. The town saw such active tourism that they kept the Hobbit holes that were built for the film. They’ve embraced the resemblance, and they even have a sign that welcomes visitors to Hobbiton.
2. Kunlun Mountains
Shangri-La is a mythical place that was first described in 1933 by James Hilton in his novel Lost Horizon. Since the book, Shangri-La has become something of a symbol for a paradise of a place. It’s something that is often used and without much idea about the origin. The real Shangri-La is believed to be found in the Kunlun Mountains in Tibet. The Kunlun Mountains is the longest mountain in Asia, and it has more mythology attached to it than just the mythological Shangri-La.
In Greek, the name Mavroneri means black water, which fits this small river because it is famously associated with being the real-life inspiration for the mythological River Styx. The Greeks were pretty well known for basing their mythology around the world around them, which is one of the reasons that their mythology is so well-loved and extensive. In Mythology, the river was one of the entrances to the Underworld that ferried the recently deceased to Hades. This never happened in real life, naturally, but the river has had its share of ill-omens associated with it without the aid of the mythology. Recent investigations revealed that Alexander the Great might have been poisoned by this river's water. Recent reviews of his death have found that he had dangerous levels of a highly deadly bacteria in his system that is abundant in the river. Given the mythological significance of the water, it is not a stretch to imagine an assassin wielding it as soon kind of poetic justice.

Exploring the Abandoned Concrete City in Pennsylvania
A friend told me about this place, so i set out to explore it!

The Concrete City was an early example of International Style architecture in the United States, built as company housing in 1911 for select employees of the Delaware, Lackawana and Western Railroad's coal division in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania. It was eventually taken over by the Glen Alden Coal Company who, uninterested in paying for required improvements and unable to demolish it due to its robust construction, abandoned the property in 1924. It stands to this day, albeit in extreme disrepair. Currently, the site is commonly used by military, police, firefighters and recreational paintball players for staged games.
In 1998, the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission declared Concrete City an historic site.
