This was on the way to the rapids, while the river is still becalmed. Beautiful hike for lunch point.
Amazing! What a position from which to shoot. Fav. I have one photo that somewhat reminds me of slickrock country from the air... River
LIKE Great Shot!
Italy was the first country in the world to start building motorways, i.e. fast roads reserved to motor vehicles. The "Milano-Laghi" motorway (connecting Milan to Varese) was in fact devised by Piero Puricelli, a civil engineer and entrepreneur, who received the first authorizations to build a "public utility" fast road in 1921, and completed the construction (back then one lane per direction was enough) between 1924 and 1926. The motorways were touted by Benito Mussolini as one of the great achievements of his regime and the proof of its commitment to progress and modernization, whereas the original idea was earlier. Lore has that the US government conceived an Interstate Highway System, to supplant the previous US roads network, when officials visited the Italian motorways in the late 1930s.

Thanks for the comment. I'm an absolute amature and got lucky; I believe this shot takes in Dead Horse Point in the background as well, though at the time we didn't realize it. The formations are amazing and the area is absolutely spectacular from the air.
