What a dumb ass...Do you even have a clue about the area? Please, ask questions if you're not familiar with the area rather than just assuming by what you see in the pics because you sound real stupid.

Steam from the deep ( deep tunnel )


Good morning sunshine


The retention wall along the slip


Close to the secant wall


Neighbors


Fresh marks - real fresh ( color has been boosted )


And on Illinois - getting ready to resurface around the trench that cuts across Columbus

What's to be sorry about? That is damn funny.

There are enough morons in this world, we need more blunt messages like this.

I remember my favorite example of this is at the top of Nevada Falls in Yosemite. It reads ..."Swift moving water. If you slip and go over the falls YOU WILL DIE"

Indian summer


The force multiplier ( 1/2 a block and tackle )


It appears that X marks a spot, stakes mark a caison.


Park closed ?






Indomitable plants.

I love comments like that. WHO did you hear that from? If you are going to spout off "facts" like that without a source, it is no different than all the other bullshit in internet forums.
