Of course, there are those of us who drive that road all the time, in all her moods. This year has been pretty boring--with only a few snowstorms and a few small rockslides in the several dozen times that I've driven it this winter. Frankly, I find the flatland tourist drivers to be a bigger headache and safety threat than I do the road itself. The one benefit of the lousy economy and high fuel prices is that traffic on most Colorado mountain highways away from the I-70 Sacrifice Zone has dropped considerably. I hope it stays that way.

There are direct flights from LAX into Grand Junction on Allegiant Air that are cheap. Sometimes $130 round trip. Yes, you would need to drive from Grand Junction to Silverton (120 miles) but the savings on airfare might be worth it. Allegiant does not fly every day; you would need to check their schedule, I think it's just Mondays and Fridays for now.

But not as big a headache for you as the recent immigrants from Flatlandia, yes?
