My state is soooo flat *Crowd says "How flat is it?"* It's so flat, I once watched my dog run away for 3 days. No hills also means no curves and no curves means no fun roads. But the far SE part of the state has good hills and trees and I happened to be going through there this morning and there is a road that once made a Car and Driver list of best roads called the Talimina Drive. It's a state park where they put in a road across a mountain ridge, just for the scenic drive. NO side roads for about 50 miles of hills and curves. Supposedly never any law enforcement there either. It's a popular ride for the Honda Goldwing clubs.
Anyway, it was drizzley and really Really foggy when I got there. Initial visibility was only 50 feet or so. But the higher up I drove, the better it got (and the faster I went). I like those curves marked 25 mph and taking them at 60. But I still couldn't push too hard and left the traction control on because of the wet roads. Here's a couple pics I took from near the top, with cloud cover down below and a mountain sticking up in the background.
