|You can barely see me at the gaping maw
of this monster!
Just barely visible on the horizon is the roof of Eckards (now CVS) across the street.
|Here again is evidence that this tunnel was well-trafficked by our four- footed friends.|
|Just inside is a nice ledge for the graffiti
This is about as far as I made it on my earlier reconnaissance mission last time since I didn't have my boots on.
Ahead (no decent picture, sorry) the tunnel splits into a parallel pair: a wide, corrugated metal tunnel and a circular concrete one.
|Just before the tunnel splits is a section of drains from the curb in front of Eckards. Ironically, had I looked down here I wouldn't have seen the big tunnel and thus would have passed over the whole system.|
|Dani is a ways behind in the wider tunnel of the pair. Somehow this section managed to have a lot of soil run-off as well as a lot of trash, very little of which was present further upstream.|
|Ahead was one of several sharp turns along
I have no idea why, but this may be the single coolest image I have ever seen.
|And then the parallel tunnels converged to a single metal one.|
|This is the single most awesome room I have ever encountered outside of a dream: five separate tunnels in four directions! Oh, Minotaur, where are you?|
|Two more of the choices. I went
a ways down the one to the left in this pic, but it was not especially
We went a bit further on the main tunnel in the direction of the one we came in from, but it grew increasingly narrow, so we finally turned back before Dani's parents started to wonder where we had run off to.
|Since we came in on the one on the right, this time we did the smaller one to the left.|
|Another sharp turn on our way back.|
