  1. I visited the underground last summer with my cousin who lives in Hermiston. To say the least it was very interesting. I had two experiences down there. The first came after taking a quick picture of the meat freezer. When I looked at the picture later, there is a bizarre white “string” hanging from the ceiling close to me; yet there was nothing hanging there when I took the picture. The second experience I had was a scratch down the back of my right arm. I had not leaned against anything during the visit, but I remember my arm began to sting when we were below and when we came up, I had a three inch scratch on my upper arm.
