I had a fun turkey-day, going to Aspen with friends. It started off rough though. There was a rock-slide on I-70 up in the mountains. The result was that there was no way for us to get through to our destination (Aspen).
Well, you can just drive around the problem right? Sure. However, the detour was > 230 miles as we went up to Steamboat Springs and down on the other side. Ouch.
The extra 4 hours in a car WERE worth it though. We had an amazing weekend in the mountains!
