New toy day! Just got my H3 and a cassette to match my bike. This will be a huge improvement over my existing smart bike.

The southern portal of the Kennerdell Tunnel looks like something out of a fantasy novel. This is along the Allegheny River Trail near Emlenton, Pennsylvania.

The northern portal of the Kennerdell Tunnel along the Allegheny River Trail near Emlenton, Pennsylvania. Between the shadows, the overgrowth, the bright sunlight, and my sunglasses, I almost missed it! I thought it was just a shady part of the trial. I didn't realize I was about to ride into a tunnel until the cold air hit me.

Looking at the northern portal of the Kennerdell tunnel along the Allegheny River Trail near Emlenton, Pennsylvania. This highlights the brick and stone work. The tunnel was dug by hand and opened in 1866. It's over 3300 feet long.

Looking into the pitch black Kennerdell Tunnel along the Allegheny River Trail near Emlenton, Pennsylvania. The tunnel is pitch black -- bring a good headlight!

The 3300-foot-long Kennerdell tunnel without any artificial light. It's pitch black inside. The only light is coming from the portals on either end, nearly .6 mile apart. This is a 3-second exposure.

The wind here is brutal today. On any of my normal rides, it's going to be a strong headwind for at least 5+ miles.

Should I still ride? (Y/y)

Really interesting history behind this tunnel: the Mays Hill Tunnel along the Sandy Creek Rail Trail.

One of the most beautiful trails I've ridden in Pennsylvania: the Sandy Creek Rail Trail west of Clarion.

I'm really happy with how this one came out. This is one of my favorite fall trail pics from last year. Taken along the Greene River Trail in southwest PA, near the town of Crucible
