The Triangle Road is a dozen miles long (or thereabouts) and is in no way a scary mountain road. It is however narrow and twisting, with incredibly scenic and photogenic spots (for those so inclined) and mostly between 25 and 40mph. The locals obviously use it. But she wanted me to simply turn from 140 onto 49 (which would have been shorter) like most folk do.
How do these people get their jobs?
I also wondered what the businesses along the route think of that. There is a little roadside cafe and also a local mini market, among others.
