In that case, if that intersection's in the U.S., those signs were put up by some local jurisdiction - below the state level - that's disregarding national standards. But I don't think I've seen anything like that here.

I immediately thought of Salt Lake city and Phoenix, but I couldn't find a roundabout at either of those cities...

Sigh.
Fine. Is it in the U.S. or not?

Around more than 600km from one of those cities...

But probably offshore
Edit: Or maybe not... it's few km less than 600 to the coast from Phoenix and Salt lake city is in the middle of mainland USA...

I really don't know what's with that signage, though.

Perhaps Chris would like to put up the next photo? I'd hate to see the thread accused of becoming too North America-focused. :-)

is it usual to have such direction signs for roundabouts in USA? or those direction signes where is this H thing? that is the most European thing i have ever seen on US roads! looks like some mixture of Portuguese and Brittish signs.

No, it's completely bizarre. Hence my (mistaken) certainty that it wasn't in the U.S. I only started to change my mind when I saw a baseball field, although there are other countries where baseball is played.

The USGS does have some activities outside the country; they certainly do seismic monitoring in the Pacific, for example. Don't know about aerial photography, though.

That toll booth is interesting.

I thought a picture of an interchange with an airplane-motive would be guessed within an instant.

Hint: the roadnumbers are (x) and (x+1).

The development patterns are unmistakably from Puerto Rico (part of the USA). PR 52/53 at Coco, PR.

Wow... these aren't actually big trees...
Funny thing I google-earthed Puerto Rico for the previous "U.S." picture, but didn't see that airplane...
So Mike, obviously it's a correct answer, would you post the next picture?
