John,

Does it actually need a dirt road in the image? I've a few rural scenes, w/o dirt roads though. :)

Wild Chukar Bird in the road to the Grand Wash trailhead south of Capitol Reef Park Headquarters. First and only Chukar I ever saw.

I was too scared to try this road in my 2wd pickup with camper trailer. The sand was pretty deep right were the dirt road left the highway, and that little tiny sandy area was probably loose sand about 3 feet deep. Plenty of places along the highway were that sandy.

No road here. Just lots of dirt and lots of OHV tracks. It's a sort of recreational area for OHV vehicles east of Capitol Reef National Park.

Near the summit of Pike's Peak. There is a small section of the dirt road in the picture, but narry a guard rail in sight. White knuckle coward, here.

Near the east end of Burr Trail Road, East of Boulder, Utah. Just after the road makes the last left hand curve you see in the notch, it makes several thrilling hairpin turns as it descends a huge escarpment into the valley at Waterpocket Fold on Notom road. At this point both those roads are dirt. If you're a good hiker, there are many excellent scenic/photogenic hikes in the area.

A coal mining truck hauling coal out of a strip mine on top of a mountain in the Raccoon Mountains near Oak Ridge, TN. I really ought to fix the color balance, but the greenish cast sets the right mood, actually. I took this photograph on slide film in about 1977.

These images form a multi-panel sequence of five 200x811 thumbnails of a long panorama at Dead Horse Point State Park,
which is on the road to Canyonlands National Park.
If you click the link near the bottom of this comment you can see all five images in one in a scrollable 900x18329 pixel image.
(You'll have to click to get your browser to show the watermarked image at the medium resolution 900x18329 images.
This is the full resolution image is actually 2452x49690 pixels tall,
so the medium resolution image is about 1/6th of the full pixel count of the full resolution of the image file.
Even in the medium resolution view (which is quite large) you can see many dirt roads. In the full resolution view, you can see them even better.
(But then you'll have to license the image or buy a very large print!)
These roads are popular with tourists, who can rent 4WD vehicles in Moab.
I would have loved to drive them, as many skirt the edge of the lower secondary rim of the Colorado River,
but as a photographer, the trip would have taken me a week, but my truck is 2wd and I could never afford that much rent!
One of the main roads that people use is called Shafer Canyon Road, which starts into the canyon near the Canyonlands Visitor's center.
Some of the roads may be restricted, and 4wd is an absolute requirement.





Here's the link to the single 900x18329 pixel tall scrollable image on my own website:
"Medium" resolution panorama of Dead Horse Point State Park view of the Colorado River Canyon
In the medium resolution view, about halfway between the left edge of the photo, and the C of "Copyright" in my watermark, you should be able to see one of these dirt roads crossing a level green space, skirting an edge of the canyon, and continuing toward US highway 191. It's easier to see in the full resolution, as I say, so buy a big print... This is 4wd heaven.

While on vacation at Siesta Key, Florida I enjoyed this long dirt road at Oscar Scherer State Park.

Those are awesome Greg! Have you thought about getting them printed to cover a wall in your house!

John, if somebody buys a print, then I could afford one too!
However, wall space is very limited in my house, so I'll just have to enjoy this one on my screen.

This may be the only image I have with a dirt road in it:

Kind of a mix of dirt, gravel, and grass road in this one, so technically I guess it's not a true dirt road. :)
