Did you know it's possible to climb to the top of backbone rock ?
Yes, I did. Mr Ben took the climb one year. A few others have made the hike through the years. I absolutely love that place and always thought it was a great spot for a group photo. I still think the interesting story about the tunnel is....ONLY after it was completed did they realize that the smoke stack on the narrow gauge train that was going to pass through it.....wouldn’t clear the top of the “tunnel”. I’m in construction and know what that call to the boss might have sounded like.
“Uh.......well we measured to the top of the boiler. Is there anyway they can take that smoke stack off?” 😂
I wish I was home so I could post a pic of it. But the notch that had to be put in it looks so.......oops!!!!!!
PS. Life and work has got in the way and I won’t see you guys ( and gals) until Saturday after you get back to the camp ground. Looking forward to it.
