Boyleston Tunnel, 1908

The Chicago, Milwaukee and Puget Sound Railway (usually just called the Milwaukee Road) passes through Yakima Training Center, a large expanse of Army-owned land next to the Columbia River in Washington.  It's now a public trail open year round to non-motorized traffic.

This is the western entrance to the Boyleston Tunnel, a well-constructed passage built in 1908 that avoids the highest part of the ridge between Ellensburg and Beverly.  Despite being a place with no buildings or residents and only one through road, Boyleston, WA is a marked point of interest on most GPS data sets and many online maps.
