Yes, the road appears to be chock a block with traffic. Meanwhile, back to your image... I tried a similar shot on the road heading east from monument valley. That was just a little busier so I had to listen out for cars coming from behind; no lookout for me.
Frank L Croston.: I bet I know exactly where you mean, the iconic shot ! I did it there too Alan, with my trusty lookout. smile

But where are the car drivers - the loneliness of the Highways?
Frank L Croston.: I don't know, we like it like this. smile
I don't know how you cope.

We had to drive into Bromsgrove this morning in the rush hour and the 8m mile journey took 40 minutes grin
Frank L Croston.: I've done my share of that, the M60 around Manchester at 7am.....This is much nicer smile
Did you encounter any traffic at all, Frank? I also imagine there would be very few homes around where you could get help if your car broke down.
Frank L Croston.: Well to be fair this was just after Christmas and most places were closed, including the North rim of the Grand canyon which this road leads to, among other places. There are a few settlements in the early miles but the further you go there are hardly any.
I guess with vast empty distances like this one hopes all will be well with the car.
Frank L Croston.: You try not to think about it Brian..You do not want an unreliable car out here....
One of the things I loved about driving in the US - miles of absolutely no traffic!
Frank L Croston.: Cant disagree with that Tom , its still a pleasure.
All that empty space and someone's left a brick in the middle of the westbound.
Frank L Croston.: I think you are seeing a reflector flap, Graeme, or if not that, its one of the oblong holes that warn you if you are drifting across the centre line.
You could of waited for a car to pass you.
Frank L Croston.: Yeh, right.....smile
