Cutting Corners

Photograph by Andreas Brokalakis, National Geographic Your Shot

Your Shot member Andreas Brokalakis was lucky enough to take in this view of the “road of a thousand kasbahs” from a roadside café in Morocco. The route zigzags through Morocco’s Dadès Gorge, presenting travelers with this hypnotizing look at its sharp turns. “The whole landscape was very impressive,” Brokalakis writes, “and its size and magnitude were breathtaking.”

Andreas congrats on POTD and  @Todd Brown.  I don't get it.  This is a photo site and your link has no photo to which to compare.

@Denis C. @Todd Brown The Beartooth is a great road to drive, from Cooke City Montana to up above tree line, just fantastic views, but I was thinking of the switchbacks just southwest of Red Lodge Montana.


Nothing like it here in my home state of Connecticut.
