On Thursday night I saw a documentary on the History Channel on Bolivia’s Yungas Road, also known as the “Road of Death.” It’s a major transportation route running northeast from the capital city of La Paz, but the most dangerous section is gravel, only ten feet wide, with steep dropoffs of over 1000 feet and no guardrails, and grades up to 14%, twice as steep as the maximum grade for interstate highways. Over 200 travelers die every year on this road. It’s completely insane. The photos must be seen to be believed.
