Thanks all. All the pictures were great in this contest!! :D Good job everyone that entered! :D .
This picture was taken on the top of the Ootsa Lake Road. It looks like it falls off into the frozen Ootsa Lake, but there is another road at the bottom of that hill that runs along the Lake. Tweedsmuir Park is on the other side of the lake.

That's a great picture.
I love the low clouds and the way that old road disappears into the frozen mountain lake.
You had to be at the right place at the right time for this opportunity.

There were some great photos in this contest. It would be really interesting to hear about some of the other pictures and where they were taken.

Since mine came in second place (#3), I'll tell you about it.

This gravel road was the first public road built between Merriman, NE and Martin, SD around 1930, and was used until the late 1950's when the present day, oil highway was constructed. Prior to the building of this road there were only wagon trails with necessary improvements where needed.

The wagon trails skirted wet meadows that earlier had been shallow lakes until they were ditched and drained. Travelers had to manage their trip between the swampy areas and the soft sand hills, an awful combination for teamsters. Short grades still exist in a few places that were made to allow travel where it was next to impossible.

Today, this is mostly a private road used by two landowners and a neighbor or two. We were moving weaned calves on this nice fall day several years ago when I took this photo.

Thanks JFRanch. That makes this contest even more interesting. No. 10 looks much like a drive I took near Lake Tahoe.

Mine was #9. It's just an old desert 2 track that runs west on the north side of Simpson Mountain. I was looking for 3 pair that a neighbor had misplaced late one fall when I snapped the picture. If a person was to follow this old road and then continue on west when it petered out, it would be about 150 miles to a town. Unless you count Callio as a town. It's about 12 families on ranches near the base of the Deep Creek Mountains and its 80 miles west from here. This road runs parallel to the Pony Express Trail which is 10 miles to the north. I really enjoyed all the entries. My favorite was #7 but the rest were pretty too. :D

#8 was mine. We have a few city type pastures where agriculture is no longer priority. We are unloading at my sisters place next door to my favorite golf course and a half a mile from all the trappings of town. It is a bit humorous watching the poor folks in their Beamers avoiding some of the deposits that inadvertently get left on the road.
