Questions for Photos 1 and 2

1. Describe what you see in each of these photos. How are they alike? How are they different?

2. The white line in both photos represents a recently resurfaced road. Why do you think it makes two sharp turns in the middle of an open field? Does that suggest anything about the age of the road?

* The small images on this screen will print poorly. You can obtain larger versions of Photo 1 and Photo 2, but be aware that the files will take as long as 60 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
