This is one of the lonely access roads into the Death Valley, California.
It felt like the perfect subject for the longest lens in my bag :)
In his comment on 15 July 2014, Raymond (monminou) shared an interesting story
concerning this place:
"Been there and I asked someone in a gas station why on earth the road was
like that and he had a very logical reason ... there are often flash floods
in that part of the world and should that happen, you get your car on a high point
and be safe ... well, that's the answer I got and it made sense to me!"
The picture is now geotagged (click above on 'view map') for those
interested where it is exactly :)
