Tunnels To Nowhere

This tunnel appropriately is placed above the Bridge to Nowhere and is one of the historic landmarks that is testament to the Cold War era. Construction started in 1956 when the government decided that people would need an escape route in the event of a nuclear attack. Due to a lack of funding, construction stopped in 1969 even though the Cold War would not end until 1991. Now, the Tunnels to Nowhere make a great although eerie 5-mile walking trail - but it is also a relic of a decade when the Cold War was at its most unstable. (Submitted by Guillermo Arce)
