Electric Highway ...

I mentioned a few days ago that I was a fan of the "Electric Highway," which was the name of an east-west route across Montana back in the 1920s. Though the name is long gone, the route exists today as a part of US Highway 12, and it's still one of my preferred routes across the state.

Here's a shot I took a few years ago of the loneliest part of the Electric Highway, in the desolate landscape of northwestern Rosebud County. You can drive for miles without seeing another car out there, and on this trip I had plenty of time to park in the middle of the road, compose and shoot a long series of photos, and even answer nature's call, without worrying in the least that a passing vehicle might show up to spoil one of my shots.
