Nike Missile Site LA-88

Saves: 85
Check-ins: 5
Right in San Fernando Valley is the site of one of the missile bases meant to protect the West Coast from Soviet attacks during the cold war. In operation from 1957 to 1974, the structures have been damaged, but not by enemy attacks. Massive wildfires in 2008 hollowed out much of what had remained. The area still remains a popular destination for urban explorers. Recently reported, this is a training base for SWAT along with a military dog kennel. (Submitted by Guillermo Arce)
