This Abandoned Highway Through America’s Heartland Is Painfully Beautiful

This abandoned highway in Pennsylvania is overgrown yet stunning. Shot via drone by YouTuber Kyle Mills, this video features a 13-mile stretch of highway that was last used in 1968 – over half a century ago. The highway is now closed to motor vehicles, but explorations on foot and by drone have yielded some spectacular finds.
