Erich Morton and his friend James stumbled upon the site of the former Six Flags amusement park in New Orleans. The park was heavily damaged in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and has since fallen into disrepair as cleanup and recovery have all but been abandoned (for now). What’s left in the park’s place is a mess of rides that are left half-standing and a lot of rubble from the storm.

Head on over to Erich’s photoblog to see some of the pictures he took. It’s a haunting scene especially given the overcast weather.
