[PHOTO] Seventeen photos of the Nordheimer Ravine and St. Clair West

A couple of Sundays ago, I went exploring with Jim down in the Nordheimer Ravine, just south of St. Clair West station. We came across some sights of interest, not only the emergency exit used to evacuate subway passengers in the 1995 Russell Hill crash but an additional entrance to St. Clair West station, exiting in the forest on the south side of St. Clair Avenue West. The sight of this apparently fully functional exit, opening out not onto tiles but onto grassy forest floor, was magical.
