Photos: Urban explorer mystery pics from vacant CU medical buildings

More than five years after the University of Colorado moved its hospital, medical school and other offices to the Anschutz Medical Campus, the buildings at Ninth Avenue and Colorado Boulevard are still vacant -- or so we thought.

Although there is no movement on the outside -- as one developer after another has abandoned the project -- there appears to be activity inside places like the morgue seen here. And as we note in this week's Off-Limits column, there's plenty more photographic evidence of visitors on view below.
