That's a nice winding road! And in the midst of such a beautiful hilly landscape, beneath such a perfect sky!

It was good that our driver had a 4 x 4. What you see in the foreground is a nice though narrow blacktop ("sealed") road, but it certainly wasn't all like that, as you may be able to see at the center on the right-hand side! Thanks for your visit. Marilyn

This one is also very lovely, Marilyn. I totally agree with Ryan, landscape and sky are just beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Greetings, Anne

Thanks, Anne. I think I've posted enough photos from the trip, but I keep finding ones I like! Greetings, Marilyn

There are not many roads in the mountains, but they need some ways to get across. Few of the roads in the interior are tarmac. I think they had put the surface on a short section of this one because it was so steep and had such extreme curves. A dirt road might easily wash away!

Again I wish to thank the visitor who has clearly suggested the correct location. I appreciate your careful description and have made the change.
