I know what your thinking, what does a groundhog have to do with urban exploration? Well let me tell you.. I recently went on a trip with saskurbex and we decided to stop and photograph what used to be an asylum. Many beautiful buildings, some used, some not we had to photograph this piece of history. While driving around the grounds I saw something jumping across the lawn, it was the size of a small dog but look more like a squirrel from the distance. After parking the car I walked over to it.. and indeed it was a groundhog. I have never seen one in the wild and one living on the ground of an old asylum was definitely interesting. So here he is.. and a picture of the building.
