I thought this was going to be another COVID-19 thread due to all the not-normally-empty roads we now have :p

Nice idea! Will need to dig into the picture archive.

BTW, with the current restrictions the roads around here are pretty empty. With any luck I've got my girl with me, but that's about it:

Empty due to a flood in South Minneapolis. Not much much distance here but itís obviously vacant. This is normally a very busy place.

Thanks for posting this shot! I know it well. I grew up just south of Lake Harriet and moved to Sacramento this summer after 29 years, so this hits the nail on the head for me.

I once biked through this, felt like a foot of water, but probably less. It was later after a baseball game played at Parade Stadium, and I was flying down this path on my way home. By the time I had stopped, it seemed easier to just keep going through it rather than turn back. It was not too far of a ride after with wet shoes and socks. Not my most shining moment, but a good memory nonetheless.

Not nearly as beautiful (or quite so empty) as these wonderful landscapes, but possibly one of my more beautiful and desolate rides of late...
