I realize this is posted into a "road porn" thread, but isn't building a road into a place like that sacrilege...?

I've been to Lushan, also Huangshan (lots of stairs, but no roads), this is apparently one place between them that I missed, tho I'd suppose the road is new since the mid-80s.

Well, admittedly these are from a motorcycle trip, but hey, roads are roads, eh?

Same trip, I think this was Gran Sasso National Park. I think. Thought. Whatever. Probably "porn" for some.
