Think of all the people who have walked here of the many, many years.

That just blows my mind! How in the world did it stay in such good condition over all these years? Great shots of a fascinating road!

Re your comment on Ocala: I think the "no petting" thing has to do with liability. Some people are really stupid and/or really mean. They may very well tease the horses who in turn might decide to bite them. Then the owner would get sued and the horses put down. :(

The Roman soldiers were kept busy in so many places, building Roman roads.
Yours has a few rough places. Caused by the weather?
The part of it by the sign is amazingly beautiful.

All I can think is how tired my feet and legs from walking the cobbled streets in Rome. Interesting shots.
