Driven to Distraction
What makes a road one you add to your bucket list? Well, hairpin turns for one, and lots of them. The same goes for switchbacks and steep grades. There are plenty of examples of those on this list, but we also searched for routes that offer something nothing else in the world does. Dramatic scenery was a factor, and, of course, roads that challenge even the brawniest of four-wheel drives. Finally, any path that makes you feel just a bit closer to your own mortality ... yeah, that was a consideration in this list, too. Read on for roads that might give you heart palpitations, the itch to hit the accelerator, or both.
