From our earlier What & Where quiz, this is what we encountered in Yellowstone National Park — just a couple of days before the South Entrance was plowed open.  I believe this would make hash out of an ATV.

Not familiar with the Oregon Trail?  This part is located just south of Lander, Wyoming and you can read all about it here.  Is it really red?  It sure is; you can see for yourself here.  And the best part is the utter silence and solitude there… just the sound of an occasional car or truck going by.
