430  Gallery on Mount Carmel Highway, Zion National Park, Southern Utah
THE MOUNT CARMEL HIGHWAY was built at a cost of over $2,000,000.00.  By tunneling through the mountain 88 miles of travel were saved between Bryce and Zion National Parks.  The tunnel is over a mile long, 22 feet wide and 16 feet high just inside the face of the cliff.  At a few points the tunnel approaches close enough to the surface of the cliff for galleries to be cut through affording gorgeous views of the east and west canyon walls.
