- Sep 11, 2007We are continuing to learn more and more about the tunnel. It is surprising how the understanding of something that has not changed in 150 years will change as we learn more about it. One of the biggest shocks to me, after several years of work up there, came the first time I walked through the tunnel with a group. Every other trip had been alone or with one or two others. I had already learned about the mountain being made up of two different types of soil/rock, but walking through with a group I learned for the first time that there is a heavy echo on the western end of the tunnel, but pass the center of the tunnel and the echo disappears!Steve Hall - Commander

Steve! Fine answer. I've often wondered why the Tunnel wasn't blown.
I assumed maybe black powder technology wasn't sufficient.
You cleared it up. You ought to stick this in the "Files"
