This road was taken very close to the covered bridge in an earlier photo. I loved the overgrown look it had. With a couple layers of color and some back lighting it turned into road that fairy creatures might travel.
The road actually disappears right around the corner.
This road brings back a day filled with laughter and fear. There is a back road to Jerome, AZ from Phoenix. I had to look for my I Survived t-shirt to remember the name of the highway. It’s Historic 89A. There are 158 curves in 12 miles. Otherwise known as the Mingus Mountain Drive. I drove it with my sister-in-law riding shotgun. I have never laughed so much. She doesn’t like roller coasters… even kiddie roller coasters. And this road is like a roller coaster except you are always going up. Sitting shotgun also puts you on the outside rim. I was only going 35 mph… but I think it might have been a 15-20 mph zone in areas. She was stomping on some imaginary brake on her side alot. I laughed and drove and she … I can’t even remember … I think she enjoyed some of it because the vistas were amazing. Anyway, it was a wonderful road to traverse and I would do it again in a heartbeat….she probably wouldn’t. She wouldn’t even let me buy her a “I survived historic 89A” t-shirt and she is one of the best sports I know. [I am smiling and chuckling the whole time I am typing this… such fun times.]
I was going to do a couple more, but that is such a great memory… I’m going to end it there. Enjoy!
