The most toy-like prototype tunnel ever?

Sometimes the real thing doesn't look right,
and would make a bad model.

I think this is one of those times.

I guess having driven through it a few times on the road,
I never got to step back to see what it looked like from a distance.

Up close it doesn't seem odd as there's a LOT of rock above those tunnels.
But from that distance, yeah, it does look awfully toy-like.
