Cape Creek Tunnel
Posted August 12, 2010, by Tanya Chadwick (tascer [at] gmail [dot] com)

Wow, this was really cool to find out the name of the tunnel and a little history about the tunnel that I love on the Oregon Coast.

I have included my shot taken on my iPhone while driving of inside the tunnel.

I love every opportunity to learn and explore anything and everything there is to see and find out history about the Oregon Coast. Such a neat place to visit and live
