|Just inside the entrance. The walls outside look really white on account of the fact they've been white-washed of graffiti. Honestly, I don't know that it was that visible to begin with considering how out of view this tunnel is.|
|I'm checking a side tunnel, but basically this is a straight shot forward other than a couple small side tunnels.|
|Here's the small side tunnel that used to lead to an oxidation pond at the surface.|
|What I found was that there were new sections of tunnels that bypassed the oxidation pond. (For scale, this section was between two and three feet high.)|
|This shot is out of order, but further downstream we found what I believe was part of the dog carcass that was in this section earlier.|
|The oxidation pond is paved over now.|
|Why this tunnel is divided like this remains a mystery to me. It doesn't make any sense as a rail or to divert water an account of the fact that there are intentional breaks in it in several places.|
|A spot where the street was paved over a former drain grate. I hate these red bricks on all the roads in this part of town. Actually, there's all over the town, but they usually have a layer of blacktop over them so you don't get your fillings rattled out.|
|I also explored a side tunnel this time that I had skipped previously.|
|It went off to the east for a ways, but was all new and uninteresting.|
|End of the line.|
|Though there's wood here, it's obviously concrete or densely-packed sand on the other side.|
|Close-up of the braces.|
|A look at the top.
There's so little water that flows through here now that there are plastic drink bottles that were presumably left by the construction crew. Only a small amount of water seeps into here these days and mostly just pools until it evaporates.
