Interstate 70 Thoughts
Returning from my weekend getaway I discovered something I didn’t know: The rest area atop the summit of Vail Pass, (between Vail and Copper Mountain,) is VERY nice! Clean bathrooms, access to hiking trails, and plenty of parking. And in the middle of the summer when it’s 90 in the city, it feels great to stop the car and stretch in crisp 60 degree air.
The second? Well it’s more of an observation than a realization: You really should forego the lemon yellow “Support Our Troops” stickers if you’re going to be driving this, which is hauling this… which is hauling this… I don’t even know what the hell is under that tarp. Perhaps a grill requiring another few barrels of crude? Yeah yeah I’ll shut up. We’re Americans and we have the right to drive whatever the blah blah… Besides I do feel safer now that 10 U.S. troops died on this same Saturday, perhaps taking their last breaths at the exact same time I passed this monstrosity of irony. Fill’er up!
