Tunnel Time

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 1 April 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

We are well into the tunnel now. Small arrows have been painted on the rocks, in certain spots, to show the best route to take. That saves much time on false starts and keeps your feet dry. You aren't allowed to wade the pools under the bridge. Water does drip from the ceiling though.
