I know it is a seasonal road but is it closed from Nov to Arpil or is it travel at your own risk?

Very close! This is actually the view from Trophy Point at the West Point Military Academy. The Academy is on a gorgeous spot and is a great place to visit.

It must be lens compression!

Don't get too excited, that " train" fits inside the tunnel boring machine ( TBM).

It's like one of those mining trains that only one man lays down on to operate, the rest of the train is dump buckets!

There is a man standing on the Top right of the TBM for size comparison, the diameter of that tunnel is only 26 feet!

It might technically be in Madison (?), but "as seen" from the Guilford marina.
