Most People Have No Idea This Unique Tunnel In Minnesota Exists

If you find yourself way up north, past Two Harbors on the North Shore, you’ll likely drive through this scenic tunnel on highway 61. It goes 1,344 feet through Silver Creek Cliff, and was only finally completed in 1994 to prevent drivers from having to take the treacherous route near the cliff’s edge, or a detour several miles inland that was used prior to the 1920s.
