Nada Tunnel / Red River Gorge GoPro
Nada Tunnel is a historic 900-foot (270 m) long tunnel along Kentucky Route 77 in Powell County, Kentucky, in the United States. Formerly a railway tunnel, the presently paved tunnel has often been described as the Gateway to Red River Gorge for the shortcut it provides motorists to the Red River Gorge canyons of the Daniel Boone National Forest.
Built for the Dana Lumber Company between 1910 and 1911, Nada Tunnel (pronounced nay-duh by locals) was named from Nada, Kentucky, then a logging town about 10 miles (16 km) past the tunnel's entrance. Solid limestone was blasted with dynamite and dug out with steam machinery and hand tools, with two teams working from each side of the ridge.
The tunnel's original dimensions were 12 by 12 feet (3.7 m × 3.7 m), but when the first train load of logs became stuck and had to be blasted free, the tunnel's height was increased to 13 feet (4.0 m). Narrow gauge steam locomotives of the Big Woods, Red River & Lombard Railroad regularly hauled timber extracted from the vast forests of the Red River Valley through the tunnel, to a sawmill 15 miles (24 km) away in Clay City.
Once the forests had been cleared, the timber companies pulled out of the area. The railroad tracks were removed and a dirt road was laid in the unlit tunnel in order to accommodate horse and pedestrian traffic. Nada Tunnel has since been paved to carry a single lane of road traffic.
Nada Tunnel lends its name to two prehistoric Native American rock art sites, namely Nada Tunnel 1 Petroglyphs and Nada Tunnel 2, which were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. (courtesy of wikipedia)

Slideshow: Tonto Natural Bridge State Park (Arizona, USA)
Tonto Natural Bridge State park is located north east of Phoenix, Arizona, USA and the Tonto Natural Bridge is about a 170 kilometres or a two-hour drive from Phoenix.
As you'll see in the video, the landscape along most of the route is very arid but is none the less beautiful and the sky goes on forever.
The Tonto Natural Bridge is formed from travertine, a form of calcite. It is usually white but can also be found in different colours such as red, brown or yellow due to impurities. Natural bridges formed from travertine are rare.
After the two-hour drive from Phoenix, park your car at the Tonto Lodge, pay your admission and hike down into the gorge to get an up-close-and-personal look at the Natural Bridge. The trail is well manicured, easy to navigate and takes less than 25 minutes to hike down. Don't forget to bring water, especially on a hot day in Arizona!
