Iron Mountain

This morning I went to Fox Chapel Golf Club in Pittsburgh with Chris to shoot some post-tournament drone pix of the course.

Nice clubhouse!

In the afternoon, we went to one of the absolutely COOLEST places on earth. Nestled in the hills of western Pennsylvania, Iron Mountain should be considered one of the seven wonders of the world. Definitely watch both videos in this link. AMAZING!

Most people know Iron Mountain (founded in 1951) as a paper shredding company but it's much, much more! A few stats about the former limestone mine: 220 feet below ground, 2700 employees, 26 miles of roads & only one tenth of the mine is developed. The largest active vault is 220,000 square feet ... the size of 6 football fields!!! INSANE!!! The history is fascinating & security is really tight.

Driving out of the mountain after an AWESOME day! I can't wait to go back!
