Tunnel Chute (4517)

Tunnel Chute (4517)
This tunnel was blasted in the 1890s to divert the river, leaving a long stretch of dry riverbed which provided a rich source of gold. The tunnel itself is about 200 feet long.

On the opposite side under the blue umbrella you can see the professional photographers who will sell you photos of yourself as you pass through this moment of terror. That tiny yellow sign bears their URL. Of course the last thing you are doing as you crash through here is taking note of a web address. They do no other marketing to the rafters. Very poor marketing plan, I think.
