If you've ever traveled in the Upper Peninsula, you more than likely have driven across US-2. It goes completely across the UP, across the country, and ends up in Everett in the state of Washington. So yeah, it's not just a UP thing.

But what the UP's US-2 does have are many cool spots to explore. Villages, cities, ghost towns, roadside stops, beautiful beaches & shorelines...and many abandoned structures.

This is one of those.

This is an old deserted gas station that sits right alongside the road, the pumps still outside in a row like disciplined soldiers. Inside, the glass doors to the old beer & pop coolers remain, but the coolers themselves have been yanked out. It's a mess in the building, but it's hard to tell if it has been vandalized or just cleared out by the owners. No real graffiti is present, which is a refreshing change.

Wires hang from the ceiling, moss grows on the floor, furniture and other objects are left behind (including a blowup doll), insulation hangs and drapes the upstairs, and fungi grows on the walls.

We do know it was at least open until 2008, as evidenced by a sign that basically reads 'you need to be born by 1987 to buy alcohol'.

Abandoned building explorations are always interesting, and for me, the ones in the Upper Peninsula hold a particular fascination. Take a look at some photos below...
