Been exploring various spots in Putnam County recently. The first is the tunnel at Stony Point State Park.

The quarry across the street from Stony Point has a dynamite storage area but I don't think this was it. No means of securing this area.

And last but not least, a sealed adit at the Canada Mine.

Thanks for sharing. I'd like to take a closer look at the Canada adit. Last time I saw it it didn't appear to undercut. I have attached the dynamite storage tunnel.

Mike I remember the day we went to find that storage tunnel which we thought was going to be a deep adit. It sure looks like it would had been deeper then 4 or 5 feet.
