The Crozet tunnel

The DP has a good story this morning about the tunnel running under Afton mountain. Soon, it will be part of Nelson County’s tourism business.

“It’s going to be pretty dark,” Gandy said, explaining that the Whitesell Group studied a similar, longer tunnel in Seattle that used only reflectors when it was turned into a trail. “It sort of looked like you’re walking at night under a full moon. … To light it is just a sin. You want that endorphin rush when you’re coming through.”

I’m going to have to go one day soon.
