Biking in Chernobyl

This photo journal is amazing. Found via slashdot of all places.

It reminds me, in a much larger and scarier way, of the abandoned coal towns and related factories in central Pennsylvania -- Centralia and its environs in particular. That's the only ghost town I have really gotten to explore -- though I have vistied briefly a couple in Montana. Following the old coal lines in PA was entertaining back when I was at uni, the huge strip-mining machines, massive houses on treads with cranes and processing gear inside, up in the hills left with work gloves hanging on knobs and everthing were spooky. I cannot imagine what Chernobyl would be like.
