A Taste of Colorado

Based on her latest message, I think this was Lisa's route today, sticking to US-30 whenever possible, and dipping briefly into Colorado to stop at Julesburg and call me before heading back onto I-76 and then on to I-80 (or more likely US-30) again. She enthused over finding fuel for only $3.52/gallon, reports that the off tank still runs most of the time, and because of the time she lost dinking around Salt Lake City yesterday, she has not been able to stop and take as many train pictures as she would like, but she has been admiring UPs rail operations along their multi-track "raceway."
