The Isabella Tunnel, Alpine County, California.

Was wondering the same thing, what was the purpose of the tunnel. One cool find for sure. 

I did do a little research and if I remember correctly it was supposed to be a mine the target ore was really deep back there and they abandoned the project before they got to the depth they wanted. Still supposed to go far back there. I found it and was going to check it out but it was getting kind of dark and I slipped trying to cross the creek. So I just left pissed off with one leg wet and figured maybe if could of seen better I would of picked a better rock to step on.

Thanks for the info, sounds like you had one hell of a trip out there! 

Yeah I was up there working for awhile on a home my mother has in Tahoe so I put some work into the area. And as sparse as that county is there are still a good number of places to go check out.
