Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Uniquely Interesting Roads

The topic for this weeks challenge by Cee’s Photography is Roads: country, freeways, streets.  This group of photos are of roads that I thought had something of special interest.  I call them my Uniquely Interesting Roads

 

Lake Meredith, near Fritch in the Texas Panhandle.  The sign tells the story about why this is uniquely interesting.  It’s the only sign like this that I’ve ever seen.

A road to someone’s house in Lebanon Missouri.  So I guess this road is a very long driveway.

This is the loop road in the Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park.  As you can see it’s a pretty popular road.  This is what I imagine roads to be like for stage coaches in the 1800’s.  I was very bumpy.

In Spokane Missouri, the High School is on both sides of this city street.  Their solution, build over it. 

Who needs a cross walk ?!

A sand road through a patch of jungle on the island of Okinawa.

Not quite as unique as the others but interesting none the less.  Amish country in southern Missouri.

A patch of highway in southwestern Nebraska.  The unique and interesting part is that we were following a tanker truck and small crop dusting plane.

The road along the south rim of the Grand Canyon.  We were following 2 German cyclists on recumbent bicycles.

And these last three pictures are taken on the main street of Oakland Nebraska.  I was fascinated with this road because it was completely made with bricks.  Something I have very rarely seen.

  1. Great pictures, Iris! I particularly like the first one. We came across a similar sign in Indiana which said ‘road ends in water’. Of course we had to investigate and they were right. It did!

  2. hello wandering iris its dennis the vizsla dog hay ha ha ha road ends in lake!!! it fails to say that maybe yoo shud stop driving beefore yoo git to that point tho so i smel a potenshul lawsoot!!! ha ha ok bye

  3. Some wonderful roads here, Iris 🙂 I enjoyed the extra details too – “Road ends in lake” (HAHA!), “Share the road” (a useful message for many places, though I imagine very important here where there are many horse-drawn vehicles). We have quite a lot of brick roads here in the UK , especially in town centres – this style of road building seemed to come into vogue from the 1980s and 90s. I guess they are the modern access-friendly version of the old cobbled streets.
