A Week Or So Ago…
On my way back on Interstate 70 from Colorado into Utah from being a guest lecturer with Kevin J. Anderson’s class at Western Colorado University, I saw three signs in the space of a quarter mile or so. It was on top of one of those 8,000-foot-plus mountain passes.
The signs were so weird I had to call Kris and have her write them down for me before I spaced them.
First sign… TRAIL THROUGH TIME
And there was an arrow to the left.
Very quickly after that sign, there was another simple sign…
EAGLES ON THE HIGHWAY
Okay??? I knew I was up high, but that was the first time I had ever seen either of those signs. And I was still puzzling on TRAIL THROUGH TIME.
And why left?
When within a very short distance (I was going about 80mph), another sign appeared.
THE GRAND REPUBLIC ARMY NEXT RIGHT
Now I am not stupid enough to look up what that group might be, and I have lived out west long enough to know not to get curious (and please don’t tell me if you know, and for heaven’s sake, don’t look it up.)
I was just glad the TRAIL THROUGH TIME was in the other direction from the army. And that I didn’t have to slam on my breaks to avoid hitting an eagle.
