Inspired by my friend Meg’s recent commute-in-pictures post, I thought I would show you guys the excitement that is the drive to Colorado for me:
By the way, my east coast friends, these are mountains!
Entering the canyon.
Sunny skies, dry roads, red rocks, green trees, and white snow – it’s a great day to drive!
Just past the summit, starting one of the long, straight stretches.
Following the railroad tracks (which I memorably tried out last summer)
“Welcome to Colorful Colorado!”
Entering the grand valley.
The exciting town of Fruita!
A glimpse of the river, and a “Deer Crossing” sign that should be heeded (as my sorority friends and I can well attest, right Emily?)
A bit of the monument, close to my parents’ home.
