Where is this road?

I saw this advertisement (attached). The road in the background looks like "my kind of road". Does anyone recognize where this picture was taken?

I don't know where that is, but I can tell you where it's NOT. Illinois.

Panic, chaos, disorder, my work is done here.

Could be a lot of places, but judging by the mountain in the background and the grade, it could possibly be Highway 14 in Utah, heading from the 148 turnoff heading west toward Cedar City.

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

Agree with Stray Mutt just spent time in Cedar City and that road looks familiar, but then again all the roads in Utah where fabulous

I live just next door to Utah, so may need to prioritize a ride there soon! My sons and I used to do a lot of dirt biking in and around Moab. That was both incredible and terrifying!!

They probably all look the same to you. Did you get new glasses yet?

I agree that it's highly likely to be somewhere west of the divide. Most ad agencies are either in NYC or LA, so a California location would be logical. One thing's for sure .... it's not in Florida, land of the flat and straight.

Looks like 191 north of Clifton, AZ. It used to be called "The Devil's Hiway", route 666. But, could be anywhere in CO, UT, NM, or AZ.

Does look a bit like 191 in AZ. They also had a route 666 in NM north from Gallup towards Colorado and was changed to 491. I think too many punks were stealing the road signs lol
