Default Your favorite road picture

Riding season is upon us.

So I thought it was time to make a post of one of your favorite road pictures.

I have many favorites but this one tells a great story.

This is on 191 in Arizona between Morenci and Alpine. I highly recommend this road. When I ran it from South to North, I saw maybe 5 other vehicles and 5 bikes. I could park my bike on the centerline and walk away to take a picture. It was a great ride and the scenery is incredible. Well once you get past Morenci and the GIANT mine operations there.

How often can you get on a quite hardly used highway and have a sign like this.



And if you can't read the sign it simply states:

CURVES, MOUNTAIN GRADES, NEXT 30 MILES.

That is enough to bring a smile to just about every rider.

BTW, at the end of this stretch of highway I was actually looking forward to a little more straight highway.

I'll add one Michael...
This picture was taken during my Alaska Adventure on Hwy A1 East of Anchorage, between Chickaloon and Glennallen.

Were heading down to Hearst Castle in the morning. I'll try and get a pic of the sign the other side of Big Sur on 1 with "winding road next 90 miles."
