Unfinished condo driveway

Several days ago I showed a photo of the elaborate entrance to a housing development. The reason the developers spend such large amounts on the entrance is to create the impression that they have enough money that they will not abandon a condo project leaving driveways looking like this.

This is the driveway that leads up to the condo buildings that I showed yesterday. This is obviously much too steep a road to leave unpaved. The developer evidently thought it was a good idea to build a road this steep to get to a spot where he could build condos with a magnificent view. I am sure that today he wishes that he had not done so.

On our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week we are showing one of our favorite places -- the town of Bellagio on the shores of Lake Como, Italy. It is much more beautiful than the Las Vegas casino that it inspired.

Haha. I drive over roads like this with some frequency.

Pretty sad circumstance. Although I must agree with brattcat, roads in the Superstition Mts. were probable comparable. Ahh, the pioneer spirit.
