Hah! I remember that post, Mark! :-) Apparently it has been 13 years since I last explored the tunnel, and wrote about it here. It is too bad that all the photos that I took back then are lost. Today's photos would be pretty similar, though.
Yeah, there are a number of places around here that you would love to explore. The Split Rock Quarry, where the bucket line originated is another one. After the quarrying operation was discontinued, the company used the remote location to build a group of buildings to manufacture TNT, picric acid, nitric acid, and other components of munitions that were used by the US and European nations during WWI. In July of 1918 there was a fire and explosion in the TNT building that leveled much of the complex and killed 50 men. The ruins of the complex, and the quarry itself are a great place for exploring. I wrote about the quarry in the Rural Ruin Community too, same year, I think.
