Mary's Rock Tunnel

Built in 1932, the Bureau of Public Roads and the National Park Service bore and blasted through 610 feet of dense granite to produce this amazing tunnel. Located just south of the Thorton Gap entrance to Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah Mountains of Virginia, the maximum clearance for this, the lone tunnel along the 108 mile stretch of the park, is 13 feet.

Thanks, Joe. HRD is a lot of fun. It takes that nexus between art and science you mentioned and kicks it into overdrive. I found you on G+. Look forward to seeing your work.
