Sub Rosa

Time to wrap up our tour of Underground Knoxville. Let's follow that string of Christmas lights through the rabbit hole so thoughtfully provided for us.
Some of our guests had a spot of trouble with this part of the tour.
But once inside, we gazed at a catacomb of old utility meters, iron grates, and a few holes in the grate that gave us a peek-a-boo glimpse into the original basement of these buildings even farther below ground. This is the end of the line. There's nothing more to do right now but turn around, squeeze through the hole, and ascend the stairs up to the surface world of 2008.

Neat place, I bet the walk and tour was neat.

Ok that does it. Get me outta here! Ooohhhhh it's dark.

Hope said...

No Way I would go in there! Yikes! This absolutely gives me the creeps. I'm with Virginia! I'm outta here! Thanks for the photos, Knoxville Girl. You are certainly a brave one!

Tanya said...

That's so cool! Next time I'll go with you and we'll leave Hope and Virginia at home ;)

What a great tour. I love underground stuff if it's not too close... I get claustrophobic yet I love caves. Go figure.

Viewing at a safe distance. What is this underground world all about. Are there trolls perhaps living there? Why am I constantly thinking fightclub! First rule of Underground Knoxville? There is no underground Knoxville.

At least you can ascend the strairs. I wouldn't go back on Halloween.

I think I'd have trouble with that hole too! Thanks for the virtual tour — you and Tanya can take the real one by yourselves. :D

Interesting idea...reminds me of the catacombs in Rome, kinda...

Knoxville Girl said...

Ok, all you surface dwellers, we'll keep it virtual.
Tanya & Jim, let's go spelunking!
ST, it's best at Halloween, especially in costume.
Saretta- but no skeletons as far as I could see.
Thanks for the comments, everyone.
