Forgotten World Highway, NZ

Forgotten is its name, but this route is really a journey of remembrance. Along its length there are constant reminders of settlers who tried to scratch out a living in the wild, isolated hill country. At the Stratford end of the highway, there's a side road leading to the evocatively named 'Bridge to Somewhere' (in response to the Whanganui National Park's famous 'Bridge to Nowhere'). Further on is the almost-ghost town of Whangamomona, which flourished in the early 1900s but went into decline.
