Going through Mueller Tunnel

We did go through Mueller Tunnel to see what was on the other side. The tunnel itself was dank, dark and foreboding - a Mount Doom type scenario. But, it was short. The portal on the other side wasn't in as good a shape as the entrance and was heavily eroded. The lower photo gives a better idea of the sheerness of the drop into the canyon. I was surprised to meet two French mountain bikers on this road. The loose roadbed, stray boulders and at times narrow trail, didn't seem to bother them at all. When we crossed paths they greeted us with a cheery, "How do you like hiking in the clouds", and zoomed on their way. More power to them!
