The Long Dirt Road has always been a place where I could think and reflect. Over the last ten years I have traveled many roads like these, often to ranches in Arizona. It was very cathartic for me not only photographically, but personally as well. Out on the road one can connect with new sights, sounds, and people. Most importantly you are presented with the opportunity to re-connect with yourself. As my friend author, Doug Peacock said in his book, Walking it Off, " I had to get out to get back in again."
