The Tunnel at Sequalitchew Creek Trail

At the end of Sequalitchew Creek Trail in Dupont, WA, there is a tunnel that runs under the railroad, and you go through the tunnel to get to Sequalitchew Beach on the other side.  These pictures were taken after we had visited the beach and were returning to the trail. Before we returned to the trail, though, my children enjoyed the tunnel for a bit! They found that it echoed inside the tunnel, and so they ran up and down it and yelled in the tunnel to hear themselves and loud sounds they made.

There are two sides to the tunnel

One side has a short length of old track going through it
(that is not a good side to run down!)

The other side is just cement,
and that's the side in which they ran!

Running to hear the loud footsteps. . . 

and yelling to hear the echoes!!

  1. The side with the track...now THAT'S the one I want to wander in (being careful where to place my feet, of course).


    I ONCE HAD A SHADOW

    I once had a shadow—or did she have me?
    My shadow and I could never agree.
    I would say something, she’d say the reverse;
    Our arguments flared, my lips I would purse,
    Refusing to speak to her anymore—
    So my shadow got up and marched out the door!
    I have not seen her from that day to this—
    That’s one stubborn shadow I surely don’t miss!

  3. What a wonderful experience for a child to have a safe tunnel to make echoes in. I agree with Magical Mystical Teacher ... I would love to wander here as well.

  5. What a wonderfully fun series of shadow shots! It looks as though the tunnel has plenty of interesting graffiti to view along the way. I was always fascinated by echoes as a kid too! Have a great week :)
