Hi Wolfgang,

Just wondered if you visited the tunnel? Would love to have been able to, especially after reading the biography about Sutro by the Stewarts. If you did, would love to hear about it. Thanks.

It was great, and hot! Nice to see the great job they did on renovating the portal of the tunnel, and the inscription on top. Had a great guided tour with lots of explanations. Water is a precious commodity and the tunnel provides just this; I drank a handful of it, and am still alive! The mule building is the only structure other than the tunnel remaining from the period. Will see if I can get some photos on a Website for everyone to see...
