As one drives into western Kansas and eastern Colorado, the signs of civilization become few and far between. We drove a main road into Colorado, US Route 50, but took the 70-mile, Colorado Route 10 to meet up with the southern road through Colorado. For over an hour we drove without seeing another town, not even an intersecting road. We only saw the occasional watering hole for cattle and the fences to keep them in.
We had an adventure driving across the prairie of Kansas and Colorado. A large bumble bee flew in the car and smacked into Yuri, awakening later to sting him on the arm. We were also stuck behind a large, open-topped tractor trailer overflowing with dead cows, their upright legs bouncing up and down as the truck motored down the highway. Be glad you weren't there to smell it.
