It's going to be tough to beat that Chinese one but here goes. Bealach na Ba in Scotland taken April 2016. I took the second photo from where the guy is standing in the first photo.

The road to Batopilas, Chihuahua, México.

My experience on this road was by third-class bus back before the road was paved.  Gravel switchbacks, single lane, no guardrails, guys on the roof, old rehabbed American school bus.

For me this has to start with the Moki Dugway.  Taken September 26, 2003.



Here are some of the switchbacks on US 212 at the Rock Creek Vista Point along the road to the Northeast Entrance of Yellowstone.  July 14, 2003.



Not a road, but a walking path, descending into Carlsbad Caverns from the Whale's Mouth.  November 7, 2003.

Camp Crystal Lake was the fictitious site of the original movie.  Note that I took away "Lake" because I thought that would be too easy.
