Glenwood Canyon Photos
For my friends and strangers over at misc.transport.road – some photos of interstate 70 as it winds Glenwood Canyon, Colorado.
I haven’t visited or posted to this group in a while, but there is a usenet board full of folks who are interested in roads, highways, and general infrastructure. If you’ve ever wondered about arcane topics like font styles on overhead signs, new versus old gantry design, and why highways and freeways are numbered the way they are it’s worth a visit. And like any good message board there’s plenty of heated arguments and flame wars too. I’m more into trains and aviation, but it’s very impressive to see the way flyovers and interchanges are designed and put together. Especially if you’ve ever navigated the 105/110 interchange in south Los Angeles.
Even if you’re not into it, it wouldn’t hurt for more people to go take photos of bridges, airports, and train stations in order to ensure your right to admire and photograph them still exist.
