Remus from Portugal

In America preserved the mountain and made a tunnel, here in Portugal, have brought down part of the mountain. In many of our constructions of roads, never was the idea of preservation, only the idea of destruction.

Lovely tunnel.

Never a dull moment on this scenic route, for sure.... the beauty of it all keeps you alert to see what lies ahead. Carving out a tunnel in that rock was a fabulous idea. Beautiful!

Wonderful point of view with the curve in the road and the tunnel! There seems hardly enough road for two cars to pass much less a truck! Gorgeous colors!

excellent shot. wonderful depiction of the rocks and road and smart inclusion of the truck passing under the arch. Though I am not as crazy about the trailing cars.

That is a gorgeous piece of rock. The truck really adds to the shot.

The colour and detail of the rocky arch are superb! Amazing to see how the natural can work with man made.
