On the Way to Moab (Rockies Mountains)

I-70 cuts through the Rockies from Denver to the western end of the state. Parts of it—especially through Vail—are like driving through the Swiss Alps. Other parts are monumentally round. Still others resemble stupendously tall Gothic cathedrals. There are even vineyards and wineries near Grand Junction in the west. I remember driving through this stretch of highway (in the reverse direction) during a blizzard two years ago with practically no visibility and the locals in their trucks passing me as if I were standing still. I think it was then I decided that Coloradans are the worst drivers in the world. I’m laughing to myself as I write this. We didn’t take one photo of some of the most gorgeous mountains in the United States.
