Photo Of The Day – Defender In The Desert

Title: Defender In The Desert

Location: Alvord Desert, Central Oregon, USA, North America

Description: Hands down the best off-road/overland truck I have ever owned, a North American Specifications Land Rover Defender 110 (Land Rover NAS 110 for short) holds a special place in my heart.

I eventually sold it and now likely live within 20 miles of its new home. But that was 10 years ago.

I drool at every Defender, and especially NAS 110s on the street and maybe one day I’ll see this truck again.
