Craggy Pinnacle Tunnel
Parkway Series #347 12 x 16 oil Sold
This tunnel just north of Craggy Gardens, around milepost 364, shows the solid rock formation through which the road winds. I cannot imagine the blood, sweat and tears it took to build this road back in the 1930's. I am so thankful for the men and women who blasted through rock and mountainous terrain to create this incredible, scenic highway and their hard work inspires me to work harder.
