|The outfall pours out into this canal and makes its way to the Trinity River a couple miles from here.|
|The outfall itself is pretty big though, so we were hoping for something interesting upstream.|
|I swear this wasn't posed. This is just on the other side of the outfall as Dani ponders what to do next.|
|At this point it split up into a bunch of tunnels.|
|You can see through the walls roughly how many there were.|
|I blasted an air horn in here just for the hell of it, and the reverb lasted forever. Almost as long as the ringing in my ears did afterward, in fact.|
|I like how this opened out to reveal that the next section was all covered over like something exotic.|
|I've got the Indiana Jones theme running through my head right here.|
|A short while later we finally found the end of the tunnel...|
|...that was fed by the lake at the top
of the incline.
So how did we end up calling it the "snail tunnel"?
|There were hundreds of the guys mixed in among the algae and pollution.|
|Here are still more little guys (Those are snails, not pebbles).|
|I guess the snails made good food for the swallows that love big wide-open tunnels like this.|
