We came through the Rockies this past Saturday on I-70. While we’ve traveled this route a number of times, I don’t think we’ve ever done it on a weekend. Apparently, not a great idea. Especially when the weather is beautiful and the Aspens have turned. Lots and lots of traffic. But it was worth it, I guess. We really didn’t expect to see that much color. Last year when we came through it was about a week later and the Aspens were just starting to turn. So this was a surprise.
If you look through the trees across I-70 you can see a small lake in the background. You’ll also see that it’s pretty low. As is the Colorado River as it runs through here. Like a lot of other places, they could use some rain.
Also, I hate to complain but Indiana is still a bitch to drive through. You’d think that eventually they’d finish something there. You know, like an interstate repair job. I guess not this year, though.
