The Loops: 3rd Washburn

We’re now a little over 191 miles from Elkhorn City.  We’re at the southernmost point of the first of The Loops, about a quarter mile past  Quinn Knob tunnel.   3rd Washburn is a curved tunnel, 915′ long.  This is the western portal at 35.839883, -82.037946.  The date on the lintel is 1913.  Snipes is next, but, as I said, we’re heading down to Norris Lake for an interesting series of tunnels (if you’re into tunnels).  We’ll get back here real soon.  The tunnels will still be here.
