Where we came from


On that recent off-the-Interstate trip to Colorado, we ended up on some gravel roads, which was part of the fun of the trip. As I was driving on this one, I could see the crest of the road ahead and just knew I’d stop there for a few (dozen) photographs.

As you can see, there was a break in traffic ( ! ) and I was able to stand in the middle of the road to get this shot. Try doing THAT on an Interstate!

  1. One fact you missed about Colorado interstates since you didn’t drive on them is the typical pace is nearly a standstill… 😀


  2. Awesome !


  3. I went to the Elbert County Fair, once upon a time, in a small group led by Elizabeth Wright Ingraham. It was day of “whimsical” adventures including a chicken processing plant, and ended in the dark sneaking around the yard of a house she had designed.


  4. Great lead-in lines and beautifully sharp contrasts.


  5. Fantastic image of the wide open spaces under a dramatic sky.


  6. Dang, there’s a bend in that road. Did you make it around in one go, or did you have to try a few times?

    Is getting off the pavement a bit like going around back? Sure seems worth it to me.
