After rain, dirt roads can become muddy tracks from which there is no easy escape. In the desert, sandy roads can swallow a car up to its hubcaps before you know what hit you. Snow frequently closes main highways (though generally for short periods) and unmaintained back roads may disappear until spring. Those cowboys in their pickups know what they're doing.

You can go a long way out here without seeing another human being but you probably won't get far without finding evidence of deer, elk, rattlers, coyotes, eagles, ravens, turkey vultures, or hawks.
