It's a dual carriageway. The left line isn't yellow, but clearly white.
So I excluded the States while guessing.

That's because my austrian photo-question got an immediate answer.

But there are those forumers who live outside central europe.

So I would dearly like to guess the highways of: Finland, Israel, Norway, Estonia, South Africa, Argentina and so on.

Also my opinion: those google flight-photos are boring
I've got a few from my part of the world just for folks like you.

The answer to SW USA was "Nope'ers".
Well, Utah is in the SW part of the USA, when looking on the map...

That's funny, the signs were carefully removed from the original picture. Not just quickly painted over.

The road layout is typically American, and the shadows indicate an east-west highway running westbound. Just browsing along I-80 to see if there is a turn to the left near an escarpment. Because of the grass I initially thought Wyoming but it was a bit further west.

Picture being over 40 years old might explain this. Maybe they didn't have this rule back then.

It's more like western USA, especially this particular spot. I don't think we should post 40-year-old pics though. But kudos to Chris.

More like central/ inner (mountain) west, the SW would be like SoCal, AZ, southern NV, NM, or west TX. I posted an old pic beacuse people where complaining about having the same'y Google aerial pics of Europe and the Middle East. Just wanted to post something different most Europeans on here probably never have seen before. Utah seemed to fit the bill quite nicely. IMO
Anyway, Chris wins so he gets the next go (please no Europe or Middle East).
