Hitting a cow, pronghorn, or wild horse is always a distinct possibility on these back roads. On the ET Highway, wild horses are less likely, but the pronghorn have showed up in the last year or two. They were never an issue before, so I guess the herd moved or the mountain lions are getting lazy. Cattle have always been a definite target on the road to be avoided. It is a real problem for people on their first visit to the area because the roads are long and straight, making 70 easily become 85mph. Given the lack of fuel in Rachel and probably at the "lockes", I do 65mph just to conserve fuel. That also gives more time to avoid animals on the road.
