Few People Know This Beautiful Natural Tunnel In Tennessee Even Exists

Tennessee isn’t known as Ol’ Rocky Top for nothing. It sits solid on a bedrock of limestone, making deep dives into the ground difficult and explosion inducing. Nashville has seen its share of construction explosions recently, but its nothing new. Johnson County has one of the states most recognizable landmarks if you’re from the area, one that hearkens back in time to old construction projects and Tennesseean ingenuity, but if you’re not from the area you may hardly know this beautiful rock tunnel even exists.
