Looks tame enough, Frank...but, I suppose there are not many roads like this at11,000feet in GB...
Frank L Croston.: At 11,000ft in G.B. there is just cloudy air, Ray! smile

Whew! They wouldn't build something like this in the UK without a huge safety fence
Frank L Croston.: Wimps!
I would go the long way round next time, did you leave me your D90 in your will.
Frank L Croston.: It's all the long way! Heavens! How many do you want?! smile

I have been a passenger in a snubnosed van on unpaved roads circling mountains like this in rural Brit. Columbia. OMG times a million.
Frank L Croston.: Good fun, Mary! smile
I think I'd catch the train instead.
Frank L Croston.: You haven't seen the train,Brian...Or the route. smile

Air cooled engines obviously cope with the thin air at 11,000 feet
Frank L Croston.: This one had difficulties...smile
You wouldn't want to sneeze whilst driving along here!
Frank L Croston.: Best not,Bill.
I would be scribbling my will to Frank... it's an amazing highway... you captured it so that we can see where the surface was built up with cement blocks... cool shot....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks,Peter,it was a great experience,with my trusty driver,who wouldn't let me have a go as I had to shoot pic's! smile
