Maybe there's a reason it's less traveled. Maybe because once someone else has traveled it, they make sure—as a way to set themselves right in the eyes of even the most vengeful god—to let other people know that they better not travel it.
This was one such road. Ever try backing up with a trailer on the hook for a quarter of a mile on a sand track so soft that it requires four wheel drive? So narrow that both sides of everything are dragged through the sagebrush?
No? Well, take it from me. It's the road less traveled.
