I have never been to Oklahoma that I can recall, but I do remember taking a highway southbound along the Salton Sea in CA back in the mid 80's while I was driving big rig cross country. It was very similar to this picture , only it seemed to have many more telephone poles along the side of it and the rolling hills up and down seemed to never end. I was on my way to deliver a 1/2 trailer load of Vermont Casting woodstoves to a destination in Julian, CA.

I haven't been there. I just saw this on Facebook yesterday and marked it. I will find out soon. It is 118 miles straight south of me. I'm betting it's not as good as the photo makes it look. The photo looks like it was taken with a pretty high power telephoto lens which really exaggerates things. If weather allows, I might be able to go there Saturday
I'm not sure but I think Donnie on theroad mentioned this road in his blog but my CRS is acting up again.

Maps.google clearly shows that NS366 road running N/S near that town, but it is as straight as an arrow. I'll bet that once you clear the 6 or 7 ups & downs depicted in that photo, your ride is over, and as I recall my last ride on any roller coaster, they have curves as well as the ups & downs.
There's a stretch of MO 76 hwy running from Anderson, MO and westward towards MO 43 that has as many ups & downs as shown here. Also, I frequent a great stretch of MO roadway called MO hwy F, in Barry County Missouri that runs from MO 86 westward into the back side of the Roaring River State Fish Hatchery and ends there on MO hwy 112. It not only has the ups & downs, it also has the curves. WARNING: that stretch of hwy F promotes speed violations each and every time it is traversed, IMHO.
It's amazing how a long telephoto lens can distort the image, even without Photoshop. The road may exist just like that and not be nearly so whoop-de-do-y in real life. Though it still could be pretty good.
This is my signature block. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My signature block is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life....
wow! that road does indeed look like fun...............Does it even compare to the Tail of the Dragon?
I'm taking a trip to the Tail of The Dragon in June 17th...........Try'd going there twice already and never made it... third time is a charm (I hope) This time on a trike'd out Goldwing!
