Cool Long, lonely stretches of highway. Let's see them.

Despitethe US having a population ofmore than 300,000,000 people, there are stretches of highway that are very desolate, where you sure wouldn't want to break down.

To help chase the winter blues away, I thought I'd start a thread of pictures of lonely stretches of highways, that you have ridden. State the highway and where it is located. To start it off, I'll post a few that I have ridden ....



SR 44 in SD, just south of Badlands NP



SR 89, Monitor Pass, CA





SE Utah sure is a desolate area. Here are a few from that area ....

.... bridge over the Colorado River on SR 95 in the Glen Canyon NRA of UT



SR 95 UT, nearing Ducket Crossing



and SR 95 UTagain, looking across Comb Wash, between Natural Bridges National Monument and Blanding





Let's see some of your "Lonely Stretches"

I call foul!!!



No fair. It's winter time and people in the frozen tundra can't get out and ride like us in the warm climate can, butI truly enjoy the pictures. Makes me want to get out and ride to those places.
