The day began with a late breakfast south of I-20 and a drive down Moreland Avenue to the Atlanta Prison Farm, the city’s long-abandoned, 300-acre correctional facility. Members of SPECTRE, Atlanta’s most organized group of urban explorers, pass building after building looking for an access point to enter the prison farm’s crumbling structures.
