Well we expected an uneventful trip across I-70 to Grand Junction following the route from last Summer when we stopped at the 4 Eagle Ranch in Wolcott, CO. Well about 45 minutes we see signs saying I-70 closed, take detour via US Hwy 6 over Loveland Pass. The detour added about an hour and 15 minutes to our trip and probably a few dozen more grey hairs on Anita's head. It turned out to be a gorgeous drive, even though I did not get to see much except for when we were stopped or just barely creeping alone in traffic. The most excitement came when we see an "Oversize Load Escort truck" round a curve heading for us, and the the big guy behind the escort. It was a bit of a thrill to get far enough over to the right while making the left curve. Anita was sure we were about to create a new ski lane down the side of the mountain.
