Road to Infinity

road-x

One of the distinguishing features of the American West is how if you get up high enough you can see a road unwinding for what appears to be miles off into infinity.

This road is North Soldier Trail in northeast Tucson. I was driving southward when I caught this view and pulled off to record it.

I wanted to get a break in the traffic, but I also didn’t have time to wait it out as we had somewhere we needed to go.

What fascinates me the most about this view is not so much the road in the foreground, but the road in the distance, which is not an extension of Soldier Trail. It is another road.

But there is an illusion that the road dips down and out of sight only to rise up again farther away.
