I was really interested in tracking that one down in particular because we're got something that's almost identical.

I'll be roadtripping this weekend (yes, I will post photos!), so someone else can take my spot.

Nope, there are no E-routes in the Gobi Desert But it's a desert alright, and the E-route is visible in the photo.

No, the E009 runs through far more mountainous terrain.
