The “You want me to go where road!”
As my family and I were driving through The Valley of the Gods in southern Utah we approached a mesa, a vertical wall of rock several thousand feet in height. I stated “Ashley, I think this road is going to end but the map shows it going through.” We got closer and then in a panicked tone I exclaimed “I think were supposed to drive up the side of that mesa!” Now my fear of heights is only second to my fear of spiders. Luckily my daughter was driving because I would have turned back. This photograph was taken at 1100 ft. I got out of the car shaking; my daughter too was unnerved by the windy drive with its hairpin turns on a single land gravel road. We still laugh as we talk about this scary journey up the side of a mesa.
The Scenic Road
This scenic road in Brown County State Park (Indiana) is a favorite getaway spot as 1000s of visitor come to view the beautiful fall foliage.
The road goes on forever
It may seem like forever as you drive through Death Valley. What seems close is just an illusion and as you think you are getting close to your destination you are actually still very far away.
The long and winding road
This winding gravel road was taken as I drove the back country of Parke County, Indiana in search of an elusive waterfall…and yes I found it, Groundhog falls.
An Ancient Road
The Sunken Trace is a remnant of the ancient Natchez Trace Parkway where in the early 1800s people walked 500 miles enduring hardships and even deadly conditions in order to find for themselves a better life.
This photograph was taken from a rest area along Utah’s scenic route I-70. Many highways were carved from mountain rock to make westward travel more efficient.
