Yes, that's a "highway." Numbered and everything!
As a non-American I have absolutely no clue whatsoever... For me, that could be anywhere. And the imagery is so crap that I can't find any details that might help me...
(yeah okay, there's a powerline, but those can be found anywhere...)

May I ask what you were doing on wegnummers.autosnelwegen.nl?

Oh, and IE

This must be any US Highway, as Route 66 as an example.

Keoki, that makes up for all the times we non-non-Americans have been asked to distinguish totally random bits of Slovenia from totally random bits of Slovakia by the lane markings.

Seriously, it's historically significant and often swarming with tourists (good plate-spotting...), and there are landmarks recognizable to the knowledgable. All will be revealed in time.

1 is closer than 66 (even if 66 still officially existed). And yes, it's the U.S.

Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania?
Penn 137, 97, or US 15?

You got it. (I thought you might.)

It's Business US 15 but in 1863 was known as "the Emmitsburg Road." Smack in the middle of the battlefield; the Confederate troops participating in "Pickett's Charge" were hampered by having to get over that fence (actually the fence you see now is a reconstruction).

The tall thing in the back toward the left is, I believe, the New York State Monument (not a power line, Keoki!), a bit to the right, if you're looking for it, the Pennsylvania Monument (it's actually quite large, but farther from the camera), and the hills are "the Round Tops."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Gettysburg

The same landmarks from a different angle: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hi...attlefield.jpg

The fence line here shows where the road is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pi...ge_defence.png

Nope, guessing random states isn't necessarily going to get the answer any faster/ easier. Remember there is 50 states.

Guessing random states = no hints
