Road less traveled

"Dust blows across a dirt road somewhere west of Simpson Springs, Utah on Sunday, April 11, 2010."

Last Sunday I ventured out west - way out west.

After driving miles and miles on graded and ungraded dirt, rock roads, listening to good tunes and laughing with friends, it came to a time to turn around.

But the drive made me realize something.

I came to realize the true meaning and found a respect for the term "in the middle of nowhere."

All my life I used the term loosely when describing my location and travels. I think I've found what it really means last week after being far from civilization.

It was energizing and surreal.

nope. Two hrs west of provo doesn't qualify as the middle of nowhere. keep on driving and exploring, my friend.

If there are no: gas stations, convenient stores, people, or animals, for two hours, one way, it's the middle of nowhere in my book. hahaha.
