Yet Another Blog Post About the Paw Paw Tunnel


Inside Looking Out


Before anybody moans or cries out, “Oh, no! Not another blog post about the Paw Paw Tunnel!” let me explain. I readily admit that this is our obligatory homage to the tunnel, so let’s keep this short and sweet.

Survey Marker Inside the Tunnel

 

In other words, there are dozens of places on the internet that’ll tell you how long the tunnel is and when it was (yawn) built. Instead, here are a couple of oddball pictures that don’t generally turn up in the usual write-up of the most famous and popular destination on the C&O Canal. BTW–bring a flashlight. It’s dark in there!

Believe it or not, when you get about 1/2 through the tunnel, you can't see your hand in front of your face!

    Thanks for the comment, Melissa. Does anybody think I should contact TAPS and tell them about the ghost orb in the third picture? Nah…it looks like dust to me.

    I never said that! However…if you click on the picture a couple of times and blow it up, it’s a concentric, creepy looking piece of work. You have to admit one thing: we started out with another mundane Paw Paw Tunnel blog post and wound up with a mystery.

    “And I would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for those meddling kids!”
