Went on a day hike yesterday, came down off the mountain and had to hike along the side of the road for a few miles, including through this terrifying tunnel. It was actually completely safe, there was a high sidewalk for hikers, but it was still irrationally terrifying. Every time a truck drove by, I felt like I was going to be sucked under the wheels. After a while, I wondered if I would pass out from exhaust fumes, fall into the road and die. I was very glad to walk through the light at the end of the tunnel.
