The road lured us away the first part of May.
My wife wanted to see the ocean. So we did the traditional California Highway 1 drive: Santa Barbara, Monterey, San Francisco. Seven hotels in 12 days. By the fifth hotel, I was getting room-number mental fatigue. 432? 234?
The remarkable image prizewinner was the SUV carrying two Edsels on a trailer, one a sedan, the other a station wagon, probably a 1960 model. The only sensible reason for hauling the cars across eastern Arizona is restoration. They badly need the work.
Edsels occupy a special small place in my history, dating to the long ago confluence of a late night, rain, a curb and an Edsel, which suffered a broken axle. (I wasn’t driving, and, no, we weren’t drinking.)
One of those “safety corridors” straddles I-40 in the vicinity of Thoreau. Heading west, it didn’t register. Returning home, perhaps the baby Jaguar from California disappearing into the horizon sparked some questions, or possibly the bright yellow signs with corridor instructions.
The state Department of Transportation has designated several routes as safety corridors because of high accident rates.
