US 50 was lonely 20 years ago, espescially in January, until "they" named it the "Loneliest Highway" ... Now, there are plenty of other much lonlier roads.
BTW - Who is they?

US 40 west of Steamboat Springs.

The straightest may be US 20 outside Idaho Falls:

US 20 outside Idaho Falls

You could drive this road with a pencil and a string.

Denali Highway

These photos were taken on the Denali Highway on Memorial Day 2012. (P.S. We definitely were NOT graced with sunshine the whole day, but it was still a great ride.)









This will always be one of the Granny Gone Wild's favorite rides, especially those times when I camp out and ride both directions. Yeehaw!

Just outside of Ten Sleep Wyoming. Long lonely takes on a different meaning at 12 mph. Lots of opportunity for self photography.
