Week of Randomness: Fenceline

For reasons that were inexplicable and non-negotiable I decided that a driving trip from Lubbock to Denver would not include a single mile driven on a Interstate highway.

It takes me practically forever to get anywhere anyway (because: photography). Add that to the driving conditions (not all the roads were paved, for example), and I think our travel speed was somewhere in the covered-wagon range.

But I saw this.

Those teeth, though

I am impressed that the wooden bunny took the time to get his/her teeth whitened. I think that shows a level of personal hygiene that’s not often seen in yard-art animals.

At high altitudes, hydration is important

I didn’t personally drink from this particular water fountain. Instead, I found, well, beer at the Guanella Pass Brewing Company.

Ho Hey

The Lumineers! I’ve been a fan for a few years and am happy to say that I am an even bigger fan now, after having seen them in concert. Here they are, covering the Talking Heads song “This Must Be The Place” and here’s a nice song, Dead Sea.

Oh, but maybe you stopped by to hear Ho Hey?

First of all – this trip wasn’t supposed to have been a road trip. The original plan, however, was thwarted by the impending arrival of Hurricane Harvey (no relation), so instead of a more complicated trip that included flights in and out of Austin, we opted to skip Austin entirely and drive to Colorado.*

Second – we were in my Patient Spouse’s vehicle, and he was driving.

Third – I get really fidgety when I’m in the car for long periods. (In my case, “long periods” is anything more than about an hour.)

Fourth – this is what fidgety looks like.

Fifth – aren’t you glad you don’t have to travel with me?!

*Yes, Austin isn’t typically on the route that normal people take from Lubbock to Colorado.We had events in both places on concurrent days. Also, we’ve never really been accused of being “normal.”
