Click here for a vid clip showing a panoramic view of the vine-smothered outer walls of the nearly-hidden, legendary abandoned high school- this is the view you would see as soon as you reach the top of the lonely, dark hill that the school sits on top of.

We made our way around the outside of the building first, marveling at the towering red-brick structure looming out of the foliage. This time, I finally got some pics of the strangely tombstone-esque marker that sits in front of the school...

I took my time circling the outside of the dilapidated school as I captured as many pics as I could... expecting to be accosted by Satanists, ghostly students, or perhaps even the fuzz every step of the way...

As we moved around the school, we could hear many eerie noises coming from inside; most likely it was wind moving through the empty halls & doorways that caused the low, moaning sounds... but it was spooky as Hell anyway, sounding like the tortured moans of many trapped and angry spirits

Finally, it was time to head inside. We had been here once before, so we remembered where many of the more dangerous spots were. Who am I kidding- the whole place is dangerous, with rotting floors and collapsing ceilings and walls... it would not be hard to get yourself seriously hurt in that place! But there were some especially tricky spots that we had to be careful of... and it was pitch-dark as night inside the school on top of it...

The place is huge- it was originally three stories- and it's very easy to get lost very quickly inside, because there are identical staircases and landings at each end of the school which lead to all the levels. Once you have wandered around inside the dark maze of rooms for a few minutes, you get completely disoriented. And you can't really look out the windows to get your bearings, as most of them are covered over with thick layers of leafy-green foliage. We made an exciting find as soon as we climbed up to the second floor- we discovered a few of the infamous old chalkboards covered with grotesque and spooky images

Cheech decided to use the opportunity to brush up on his math skills. He also decided to leave his REAL phone number written somewhere on one of the chalkboards (that loon!!) just to see if anyone... or anything... would give him a ring. Ironically, he got a phone call at 2:58 a.m., the very next night, from someone who was calling from inside the school on a cell phone!! And yes, he did return the call... resulting in us meeting a very cool fellow lost explorer from PA, proving yet again that life is indeed stranger than fiction.

As we traipsed through the rooms and hallways, we were commenting on how odd it was that these very floors used to be crowded with the feet of hundreds of students every day; now they are crumbling away under a spongy carpeting of mossy growth. There is evidence everywhere of the hungry fire that gutted most of the old school, and an uneasy sense of danger hangs heavy in the hallways of Lambertville...
