This is a photo from the drive from Santa Fe, New Mexico north to Colorado, taking the back roads (Route 285) rather than the expressway. I took this photo in March, 2015.
This is a photo from the drive I once took from Fairbanks, Alaska all the way up to Deadhorse and Prudhoe Bay.
November 20, 2015: The photo (from the Denver Post) tells the story.
I don’t remember exactly where I saw this painting, but I know it was somewhere in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Probably inside a large hotel I can’t remember the name of at the moment.
Had my first nightmare in many years, and woke up crying. I had just been told that one of my favorite people on Earth had died, and I was being told over the phone how it happened.
The short story is that there had been a bad storm, and trees and power lines were down. Two friends were driving on Bardstown Road, and they were side-swiped by a yellow car that presumably kept going (as a hit-and-run). Nobody was hurt at that point, but the two people got out of the vehicle to inspect the damage to their car, and that’s when the death occurred.
I don’t know how it happened, because in my dream I was starting to lose the phone connection, but I assume they were hit after they got out of the vehicle.
Here’s a little view of a road in the mountains of Hatcher Pass, Alaska.
If you ever drive south out of Anchorage, Alaska to destinations like Seward and Homer, this is what you'll see as you exit Anchorage, due south.
Here’s part of the road (I-25) from Colorado to Santa Fe, New Mexico.
I’ve watched so many British tv shows, I have a hard time driving on the right side of the road.
I don’t take too many photos of traffic intersections, but this is a favorite view of Boulder, Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. In this image I am on South Boulder Road, with the city of Boulder directly ahead.
