Crumbling stairs

These stairs led to a loading dock at the abandoned warehouse. They wouldn't hold much weight today. The tree growing through the gap between the stairs testifies to how long the place has been neglected.

I wouldn't risk climbing those stairs that could fall down at any time.

Be careful where you tread! Beautiful wood grain patterns in the panels and the foliage of the climbing vines really stand out nicely.

A nice view of these crumbling stairs. Interesting how the tree has grown up under the railing.

Interesting how the tree has grown up through there.
