    Road of death...pics

    Some of you may have seen the Discovery Channel's "Road of Death". Here are a bunch of still photos of it.
    For those who didn't...This is a mountain road in Bolivia that just has to be the most dangerous in the world.
    I have been to Bolivia (I have never forgiven them for shooting Butch and Sundance) a number of times but never got to drive "La via del muerte".
    Hey Ozzy/PAK I'll put the top down on the Tbird and we can take a nice Sunday afternoon drive.

    I don't have the capability of posting the photos, so you will just have to click on each link...it is worth the trouble.

















    Edit: Since there is a limit to 10 pics per posts I Could only fix the first ten for you . The rest you'll have to click on.

    OMG! I didn't know anything like that existed! That looks super dangerous! How many people die each year on that highway?

    The last picture is wild! I just received an email yesterday with a similar set of pictures, although it a path/trail all over this cliff/mountain and the bicyclists cruising around doing wheelies. The subject of the email was "When helmets make no sense."

    I always love seeing stuff like this since I have little worldly traveling experience!

    That is absolutely insane. And I thought Jamaica was bad. How pampered are we Americans? Thanks for sharing.

    At first I thought "no biggie" Been on some hairy roads in the mountains of Switzerland, especially in the Interlaken area... and people drive fast there.
    Then when I got to the end of the pics I said "forget it, that's crazy"
    The carved out montain road pics were really cool too!!

    I did not take those pics Trapper...wish I could have had the experience of flying down that canyon.
    I do not remember how many died building the road or how many "tip over" on the road each week. Perhaps some of you who saw the TV special will recall.
    I know they like their alcholic beverages down there, especially a 100 proof drink they call Pisco , and have a wee bit of a problem even on the straight and level...so I am am sure quite a few don't make it on these twistys.
