US 12 south of Wisconsin Dells. It's a new expressway. The interchange in the foreground is with I-90/I-94.

I use Google Earth. For instance, it's clearly midwestern United States, while it's also forested, so that leaves out certain areas like most of Iowa or Kansas or southern Minnesota. But this could have been in Michigan as well, so it required some searching.

I knew that one the instant that I saw it. If I were the benevolent dictator who was laying that one out, I would have connected the US 12 freeway directly to the interstate off to the right, leaving the 'old' highway (the road on the left) as it was.

BTW, that image was looking due southward.

What threw me off was that darkness on the horizon. I assumed it was one of the lakes and wasn't looking as far west as Wisconsin Dells.

As stated by others, Chris is right. (PS Chris, for the next one could you please make it another North American pic? )

FYI for anyone interested: The bluffs in the background are known locally as the Baraboo hills.

I believe since Chris guessed correctly on the last one he gets the next go.
