Missed me

On Memorial Day weekend this 8.5-million-pound rock tumbled from a mountain and destroyed part of Colorado Highway 145, which runs between Cortez and Telluride. I’ve driven that road several times, but not that day. My luck continues.

While the state doesn’t have the funds to remove the rock, it has federal highway funds it can use to reroute the road around it. Because that’s the way the world works.


  1. As I recall, the article mentioned using dynamite to move the rock. Of course, the cost of highway rerouting, at approx $1M/mile is WAY more lucrative...for them, not us.

    Should we start a Go-fund-me?
