I can’t tell you how many times I’ve driven this road over the years. I take the tour every time I’m in town. It reminds me of being 19 all over again. I was in the Army and attending AIT at Fitzsimons Army Med Center in Aurora…not a care in the world beyond chasing tail, seeing as much of Colorado as possible from the seat of my Jeep, and potentially popping off to Desert Storm. Fortunately, AIT outlasted my assigned unit’s tour in the Middle East and they were on their way home just as I was finishing school. I remember being disappointed at the time…I thought I had missed out on an adventure…man, kids are stupid.

We cruised the twisty turns and enjoyed the views…ran into a police cruiser almost immediately and slowed it way down to a legal velocity. I wondered what Mike must be thinking…seeing this for the first time…he’s really going to be shocked when we get up into the real mountains. We stopped for a few photo ops…


Typical tourists
