*I snapped the picture above as we were going through a gorgeous, curvy canyon area in Utah today.
So many of you already know this… but for those that don’t:
If the road gets too steep going uphill they slow down due to the weight (naturally). Conversely, if the road gets too steep going downhill, they slow the trucks way down. This is to prevent the weight from pushing them past the speed limit. If the road is really curvy they slow the truck down so the horses don’t get thrown about. So…ya, it takes a while to get somewhere on travel days depending on the landscape.
Tonight we are overnighting in western Colorado. Tomorrow, we will be in Fort Collins, the hitch’s home base. But first we will have to go over the Continental Divide via the beautiful Glenwood Springs canyon. Hands down from here on in it’s as breath taking as Colorado can be.
I love it so much!
Tomorrow I can count on two things:
- An even more beautiful day as we wind through the mountains!
- Another good gas mileage day by not being in the fast lane
What’s your favorite drive or highway to be on? Have you ever been on Interstate 70 in western Colorado?
