The Tunnel - Windy Point Viewpoint









































This is the beginning of a 7.8 mile long tunnel between Scenic and Berne, in the Northern Cascades. It was completed in 1929 by thousands of laborers working round the clock for three years. The inauguration was broadcast nation wide. This continues to be one of the longest tunnels in the Western Hemisphere. Mostly, container trains pass through this tunnel.
