This is one of those scenes that make me nostalgic for Colorado. I love a big valley in the mountains. We don’t get that here in Indiana. We have gullies. Nothing wrong with them. It’s just a matter of scale. In this image we’re looking northwest and can see US36 winding its way from Lyons to Estes Park. US36 continues through Rocky Mountain National Park where it is called Trail Ridge Road and climbs to over 12,000 feet making it the highest continuous paved road in North America. On the western side of the park US36 terminates when it meets with US34. Out east, US36 runs through central Indian before it terminates in eastern Ohio. It is the main street in my town of Avon. When I lived in Boulder and then Lyons, it was a main street in both of them. My life in multiple states and cities has been tied together by this road which winds its way through a big valley in this scene today.
