Windows Live Local: Supermax

Since I enjoy fooling around with Google Maps so much, I thought I'd try an entry from time to time linking to their cool satellite images. Not anything as elaborate and as well thought out as the Google Sightseeing site, but maybe something every now and then that is timely. Google Maps also has a new competitor called Windows Live Local. Whichever has the better image of what I'm trying to show you is the one I'll give you.

No high resolution shots of the area on Google, so this is Windows Live Local. This is Zacharias Moussaoui's new permanent address, Supermax, a.k.a. ADX Florence or "the Alcatraz of the Rockies." This facility is located on the outskirts of the tiny town of Florence, Colorado, and actually holds a Guinness World Record for Most Secure Prison. Moussaoui will be surrounded by some of America's most notorious inmates, including Ted Kaczynski, Terry Nichols, Omar Abdel-Rahmen, Ramzi Yousef, Richard Reid, Matthew Hale, Robert Hanssen, David Lane, and Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso. Supermax was also where Timothy McVeigh spent his last days on Earth.

More info on Supermax can be found here.
