Side Trip

This road was so incredibly long. The shot was taken in Oregon when I decided that I wanted to take a scenic route. While the ride was very very scenic. I listened to about 25 podcasts and drove for 6 extra hours. To say that the road was a long one was an incredible understatement. However this is my absolute favorite road photo I have ever taken so it was worth the long hours along a long windy lonely road in Oregon.

I am running three concurrent contests this month. Today is the 8th, that means in one week I will be done accepting entries into the contest. There are a few people who are in the running to try and win a GiSTEQ PhotoTrackr Lite. But the race is by no means over and done with. However there are two other contests with prizes for 1st second and third place. So this month there will be 7 winners out of all my contests. That is if you participate. I have yet to get one entry in either the Win a Baby Sherpa Diaper Backpack or the Win a Mad Gringo Hawaiian Shirt contests. So what I am telling you is that you have a very good chance of walking away with some sweet prizes for writing a pretty simple post.

also if all went well I made it through the 1st round of the 3rd International Blog Cup and if so I am going to need even more votes in the next round. Please go to 3rd International Blog Cup and click the vote button next to the link to The BenSpark.

    Hi Drew,
    I answered your question here:

    I think you can get what you need on BlueHost. Good luck!

    Roads can be very long in eastern Oregon. I got lost once going to Halfway. We departed in the morning passing a sign that said Halfway 67 miles. About 45 minutes or so later we passed a sign that said –you guessed it–Halfway 67 miles. 35 of those next miles were gravel road. But it was the most beautiful lost I’ve ever been. (And yes, there IS a Halfway, Oregon, and it’s a LONG way from anywhere!)

    Nice shot. looks like a painting 🙂

  11. Ah, that’s beautiful! I like how the asphalt is so dark. Where I live, the asphalt is always bleached an ugly pale gray, I guess from the constant hot sun.

  12. Andrée says:

    It was such a long road, I use this photo for many things too, it is the cover of my 2008 calendar and it is my wallpaper on my computer.

  48. Drew says:

    Thanks Lutchi,
    I will go and visit your photo sites and see what you caught in this week’s hunt.

  49. I love long roads and though about using one of my road photos. In the end I chose differently but I am glad you didn’t. This is a great shot.

  50. Drew says:

    As I drove this road I envisioned a scene like this one and that is what I kept my eyes open for the whole time,

  51. TeacherJulie says:

    Wow, what a wonderfully paved road and scenic countryside.

    WOW! I think it just might have been WORTH the 6 extra hours drive time too! Providing you weren’t in a hurry to get there… 🙂 Great shot! Thanks for stopping by my hunt!

  57. Drew says:

    I had the time, luckily because once I got on that road there were no places to turn to get off, I just had to drive and drive and drive to get to the other end. Thanks for the visit.

  58. Sabine says:
