A Drone Flew High Above The Abandoned Donner Pass Tunnels In Northern California And Caught The Most Incredible Footage
It’s always amazing to witness how nature decides to reclaim a long-abandoned structure. There’s just something about the blend of man-made technology and natural beauty that never ceases to amaze. The iconic Donner Pass tunnels near Truckee are a prime example of this. Built for the transcontinental railroad over a century ago, the tunnels have sat empty for decades and are now a popular place to explore. Visiting the area can be tricky since Union Pacific Railroad still technically owns the property, but you can see these abandoned tunnels like never before with the gravity-defying drone footage at the bottom of this article.
Have you seen the abandoned Donner Pass tunnels for yourself yet? It’s definitely a bucket list NorCal destination.
