Tonie Seger, a retired Navy nurse, was the owner and caretaker of Burro Schmidt's Tunnel for 40 years. Her place was a popular check-point for off-roaders and other weekend desert rats who always enjoyed her hospitality and her wonderful stories. We will all miss her.
Burro Schmidt spent 32 years of his life digging a 2,094 foot tunnel through the top of a mountain. Why? Probably for the same reason Tonie took care of the place; it's an excuse to live in Last Chance Canyon.
