Disappearing Road in France


Now you see it. Now you don't. The road that is this unique causeway in France disappears under water about twice everyday for a couple hours.

So, if you're traveling on either side of the road and the tide comes, settle in you could be stuck for there for a while and that's on a day without severe weather.

It's called the Passage Du Gois and is popular among tourists. The road is considered dangerous, signs warn people to avoid the causeway when it's flooded.

But there are those who can't resist, and rescue towers line the road just in case someone makes the trek at the wrong time.
