This is one of the side roads we passed on our road trip out west for a family reunion in Colorado a couple of summers ago. Out in those wide open spaces you can follow one of these gravel roads with your eyes until it diminishes to a tiny point on the horizon or disappears at the crest of a distant hill. I like to imagine that at the end there’s a good old-fashioned home cooked meal waiting, and probably a good ol’ dog runnin’ out to meet the pickup.
