was a tunnel that EMRoach* found and had explored many years earlier.
Since Melancholy and I were in the neighborhood, we decided to give it
*I don't get it either,
but I didn't think to ask.
||The tunnel began as an incredibly long
round concrete pipe.
||Mel takes better pictures than I do, so
here's one of them.
||There were a couple "rooms" along the
way, but they weren't anything interesting, and the tunnel itself was pretty
much featureless overall.
||Finally at the end was this tall room.
There was another tunnel that went off to the side that we also explored,
but it wasn't long before it grew too small to continue in easily.
||These guys are Spiderman. There
were little bolts in the wall that were just enough to find purchase if
you were determined enough. I wasn't and didn't try climbing it.
||This isn't the view out through the drain,
but rather a view across the field we went under. I believe the tunnel
ended at the far end at the edge were the factory was.
The name was coined by EMRoach and derives
from the fact that the factory in the distance was used for manufacturing
dog houses. No, I really don't get where the "run" in "dog-run tunnel"
comes from, but that's what he and his friends called it as kids.
