A Road Cut Trough Ages
Transfăgărăşan / Bâlea Cascadă


"Built as a strategic military route, The Transfăgărăşan (trans + Făgăraş ) or DN7C is the highest and most dramatic paved road in Romania. The road climbs to 2,034 meters altitude. The most spectacular route is from the North. It is a winding road, dotted with steep hairpin turns, long S-curves, and sharp descents. The Transfagarasan is both an attraction and a challenge for hikers, cyclists, drivers and motorcycle enthusiasts alike. Due to the topography, the average speed is around 40 km/h. The road also provides access to Bâlea Lake and Bâlea Waterfall."

Great shot. I have to ask. What are the police like over there. If that were in Australia, there would be police at the end of every straight with a radar gun.
