OK, I'll play.

I snapped these photos (360 degrees) of a roundabout (aka traffic circle, rotary) in the middle of nowhere while riding cross country in 2014.
I was riding from Blythe. CA to Wickenburg, AZ that day, and I think these photos were taken on Arizona State Rd 60 East (SR60E).

Not certain if massive rapid development of the area was expected and civic planners were getting a jump on things, or if it was some payback in Congress for a vote, or whatever.
It reminded me of the Blazing Saddles scene in which the good guys placed a toll booth in the middle of the desert to delay the arrival of a gang of bad guys.
Maybe now that it's 5 years later, the roundabout there makes more sense than it did then.
