We finally made it to Colorado and were re-routed YET again because of a rock slide on the main road we were taking. So, google maps led us on quite an off-road adventure.
The road was not on the map...but it told us to turn right, so we did...
And we saw this "highway", made of a dirt road that is clearly only open during a few months of the year.
With a little trepidation, we made our way down the road, literally praying that it would truly lead us to the next highway we needed.
We finally made it to the other side- about 45 minutes later. When we made it to the main road, we got out of the car and had a small celebration and praise for our safety and for the paved major highway ahead of us. As we celebrate, we looked behind the car and saw this sign!!
If we'd seen that sign on the other end of the road, I'm not so sure we would have taken it, but now it sure makes for a great story and memory!
