About Me 

Website: http://www.thetunneldiaries.wordpress.com

Artist, photographer, marketing professional. I live in a mountainous area with many bridges and tunnels. My blog site is a commentary on the tunnels on the old Clinchfield line that ran from Elkhorn City KY to Spartanburg SC. But there's so much more in this area! Thousands of pix now and looking forward to thousands more.
