One of the many tunnels through the mountains between Asheville, and Mt. Pisgah on the Blue Ridge Parkway. A little dangerous actually but if one listens carefully for vehicles you can get out of the way before they come ripping through the place.

That wavy line of light area is the rock face of the sheer cliffs along the couple of miles of the mountain face.
