No because the bridge or be too tempted to pop up. For the well we can you give bungee cord yeah but the fact that there. Are what about Lebanon and Everett. Well eleven never minds the first to open as the Lebanon is in this pretty exciting this year. Because over the winter. We took out our water tanks Houston back in the day collect water you are watering. Everything from the toilets to. Drinking water right reroute all those and we went back in and cleaned out on the whole pile of buck as we although it looked as good solid rock and turn all the way back to the Alhambra. Loomed which is no way past I seven easier going into the mountain. And opened up. The area where the traffic intersection was we had traffic intersections underground chair. They went along the Alhambra load north and south. And just like you have a traffic light their own player turns right turns up we uncovered at the switch. He controlled all the tracks to go wire north and south and southwest. England is is in that's going to be available on the extended tour OK so if you don't mind before. That's when you gotta do this year because he's really really great parents ever seen that anywhere. The eastern Colorado once there they just on out there and there's new lighting and there's all kinds of things have been done to me because a lot of really. There's new openings to places unknown factors that affect the fear it was their map before this I mean were you did you did you have a sense of what was there were. Of month when it comes to minds yeah. There are maps OK okay. The maps and reality don't always agree okay. This was especially. It's seen in that in the early 19101915. Period all the weapons in 1930s in the depression era. People went in there they were usually big operation with the mapping technology should they were small 123 men shops. And they were just I used a digital over here they have a lot of new tunnels. There were built you know roughly a hundred years ago there and most of those were not marked on the maps yet so we're always uncovering a new places and divisions. So so there is too good to words in the tunnels in the minds and all that went to school and thanks to our well that's gonna start.
