The World's 18 Strangest Roadways-- Part 2

6. THE MAGIC ROUNDABOUT-- Swindon, England. Notoroius for its many roundabouts and also has five smaller roundabouts. (I hate roundabouts. You never know when or where you're going to get hit.) // 7. HIGHWAY 1-- Iceland. The "Ring Road" loops around the entire island. // 8. THE CHEROHALA SKYWAY-- Robbinsville, NC. Fifty miles long two lane road that cost over $100 million. Opened 1996 and varies from 900 feet to 5,400 feet. Serves as part of border between NC and Tennessee. // 9. YUNGAS ROAD-- La Paz, Bolivia. "Road of Death" Check It Out. // 10. DALTON HIGHWAY-- Livengood, Alaska. Gets a nod for extreme remoteness and desolation. Some 414 miles of unpaved gravel with no restaurants or gas stations. What? No motels? // 11. CAPULIN VOLCANO ROAD-- Capulin, New Mexico. On an extinct volcano. Covers two mles of extremely narrow road with 6% grade. //// Some Strange Roads here. --RoadDog

I didn't know the Cherohala Skyway was one of the "strangest" but I do know it was one of the most enjoyable roads I've driven.
