Lonely highway

Driving from North Carolina to Tennessee the highway goes over several high mountain passes. In places the road is so steep there is an illusion of the road traveling straight up to the sky. Though most of my days I am in the forest and get little view beyond the trees, here in the open the clouds roam the sky like a wild herd of giant fluffy animals, crossing from one mountain ridge to the next. I took this photo with just a single car ahead, to give a sense of how lonely this stretch of road can be.
