|Hwy 94, Colorado|
I'm glad I took the risk. U.S. 40 to CO 94 took longer than staying on the freeway would have, but this way, I got to get back in touch with the wild loneliness of the plains. CO 94 is a direct shot from 40 to Colorado Springs, but little traveled. The cut takes about 90 minutes, and I saw no more than five cars along the way.
As I drove, I was struck anew by the beauty of the open sky and by how big the world is. My world can get crowded and small. A drive across the high plains does wonders to bring things into perspective just a bit.
