It’s not Colorado, but …

Isn’t it fascinating? Colorado photographer Nate Zeman shot this intriguing stretch of road in Door County, Wisconsin. He describes it as an “unnecessarily curvy road.” Bit of an understatement, eh? The most likely explanation, he says, is that a famed landscape artist lived in the area and thought the perfect highway would be “a thoroughfare that slowed traffic and kept nature always in its view.” The inclusion of the street sign drives home the point.

I’ve featured a few of Zeman’s photographs in the past, and there are many more on his website. You owe it to yourself to go take a look.
