The topography of the mountains and the brilliance of the sky in Summer create powerful illusions of proximity and height. Some steep roads present a view of the ocean raking up toward the horizon, others show declining tracks as hills. This combined with the wind driven shifts in sound perspective forces you to perpetually re-read the landscape.
