"Off Roading in the Outback of Utah"


Traverse City, US
          

Took an afternoon Off Road trip into the mountains west of Orem last weekend on a beautiful sunny day. This is definitely a place where an experienced 4 wheeler is needed. Roads were muddy and 7 or 8 miles into this part of the country is no place to get stuck. Remarkable countryside.

All shot with the Nikon D800E and Nikon 24-120 f4 hand held matrix metering

Hi Peter , Looks like pretty spectacular country side to go 4w driving in. I like the 1st 2 photos and I also hold a black piece of paper hiding the foregound and I think they look real good as well.

Cheers Glen

Thanks Glen

This is one of the most spectacular places I've lived in the U.S. I'm a little
curious about the black paper blocking the foreground however. Appreciate the input.

I remember the time I bought a Jeep and stopped at the service station I traded with and the guy that owned it looked it over and commented that " I can tell you something you can do with that ,that you couldn't do with your 2 wheel drive pickup". I foolishly asked him what? Expecting some great fun thing. He replied laconicly ' get stuck further off the road', and you know he was absolutely right.Wonderful pictures as is usual.

:) That's a good one Ken...

We went thru some pretty dicey real estate on this trip and I had some concerns at times but my friend Anna who was driving and has done stuff much more extreme than this did a great job. As for the scenery....well... what can I say. Going here provides you some views that lots of others will never see and it was worth the few anxious moments I had during the drive.

cheers

I like all 3 scenes, but the time of day of the lighting holds them back for me - they would be really something in a golden hour setting I would think.

Thanks for the input David

These were meant more for sharing with those who've never been to this part of the country. Just grabbed them as my friend and her daughter and I were touring around the back roads here. And yes... golden hour lighting would add a nice touch here.

Just wondering, are there designated trails that you were required to follow so as to not "damage" the pristine terrain!!!???? There are some real idiots out there that would take 4 wheeling to the extreme and run track all over the place. (I would not expect you to be one of those "types").

Visiting Arizona a few years ago, alot of areas are fenced off from just those kind of people. YOur trip is something I would love to be able to do, but really can't afford to do the trips Nikonians advertises or those conducted by the likes of Alain Briot, whose books I have read re: Creating/Marketing landscape photos.

Hi Michael

In some places there are signs requiring you to remain on designated trails. In other places on BLM land it seems its pretty much anything goes. Although there's so much vegetation it would be impossible to travel anywhere but on the roads. I did a lot of back road exploring and never saw the other vehicles stray from the two tracks. However, there are lots of places in the state where you can take an ATV and just drive around anywhere you want. Didn't see a lot of that but it is very popular in Utah. In California , like Arizona, everything including back roads in the Sierra Nevada is fenced off as private property and very restricted.

I hear you. We were in Arizona a few years back and it seems the whole main highways were fenced so that you couldn't even just walk around off the main drag. Bummer.

Thanks for sharing. Looks like a wonderful place - and a reminder to get off the main roads.

You've had a wonderful trip and have posted some very nice images. What's more, I can see your photography and eye have really improved. The intense photography and exploration will pay off well beyond the end of this trip. Thanks for all of the images you've shared.

Thanks Eric,

Not sure where I'll end up next but this was a real gift...getting to spend 7 months in one of the most scenic parts of the country. Got lots of files to edit once I get back East where I'll be on hold until my next project. I'll post more from the road trip across country in a week or so. Appreciate the nice comments.

Wonderful images again. I've really enjoyed your images and stories the past few weeks but you have been killing me with your adventures. I'd like to get there some time.

What type of vehicle were you driving?

Thanks for sharing.

Here's a photo of the vehicle we were using : My friend Anna's Toyota. And although the terrain here was pretty rough in places this was pretty mild compared to some of the places in the Rockies she's been with this. It handled everything we crossed including steep, very rocky terrain in some spots very well. Helps to have an experienced off roader like her behind the wheel.

My pleasure Franco

This was my first trip for an extended period in Utah and what a great experience it was. Saw a lot of the state even though I missed seeing some of the National Parks...but I did get into the back country quite a bit and loved every minute.

Thanks Charles,

One of the things I remember when I was in the Rockies during a rain storm one afternoon was the smell of the leaves and pine trees at 9000 feet. Great aromatherapy ... you could even smell the bark on the trees when it rained. And out in the open range, the sage and other plants...wish I could bottle that stuff.

Great views of the outback. I have had a 4 wheeler for 30 years and I for my two cents am not going to wait for any golden hour that deep in that cold climate-too scary-one close call is all I needed. Peace Ron
