The most beautiful motorways in the mountains

So, just to ask - what do you think which motorways are the most beautiful in the mountains...?

From my part of the world:
Austria: Semmering Schnellstraße S6 between Neunkirchen and Bruck an der Mur
Croatia: Dalmatina A1 between Ogulin and Metkovic
Italy: A23 Pontebanna from Tarvisio Nord to Gemona/Osoppo

Let's start the discussion!

regards

A13 in Austria and A1 in Italy between Bologna and Firenze are the nicest motorways which are in the mountains.

Interstate 87 through the Adirondacks (northern New York state). Particularly this time of year.

A10, Italy. Nice mediterranean views. Relatively high altitudes despite being so close to the sea.

US 101 as freeway from Scotia, CA to Benbow, CA (Redwood Highway - the Avenue of Giants).
I-80 from Auburn, CA to Reno, NV.
I-15 from San Bernardino, CA to Victorville, CA (Mojave Fwy-Cajon Pass).
I-76 from Pittsburgh, PA to Harrisburg, PA (Pennsylvania Turnpike - Allegheny Mountain Range).

Not as motorway:
CA 1 from Monterey, CA to San Luis Obispo, CA (Big Sur); US 101 as fwy is behind the Santa Lucia Range.

I don't have my photos of mentioned motorway, and posting googled pics is not a big deal, anyone can google them.

Type ‘A10 Italy’ for example and see the results for yourself. I simply wanted to see an exemplary photograph for each choice. It doesn’t even have to be a photograph – you might as well narrow it down like darko06 or provide links like Aokromes.

Personally, I like this stretch of S7 (Poland): http://goo.gl/P6BkJ5 .

Depends on the stretch. I live in Sevilla and I would never say that the 120km at the start are beautiful.

I suppose you are talking about some parts nearer of Granada.
Also, AP-46 (from A-92 to Málaga) is really beautiful, particularly if you go down (starts in Antequera and finish in Málaga)

A-92 hits 1380 meters at Puerto de la Mora, which is pretty high for a motorway in Europe. In fact, it is 10 meters higher than the famous Brenner Pass.

Yes, exactly, from Granada eastward.
