We walked over to Colorado. It's an easy hike, I'm telling you. Surprisingly, we didn't see any 14,000 ft snowy mountain peaks. We didn't feel Rocky Mountain High* either. We were up at 1,480, if that helps, feeling like high plains drifters, but with better transportation, no face masks, but still, yeah, no cell service. Out there, in the bright semi-high-desert sunshine stood this hand sanitizer dispenser in the Colorado sector of the monument property.
Really, I don't have much more to say this time. The stupidity sort of speaks for itself. Oh, and the dispenser was clean out. Whaddya' do? Were I the panicky type, I guess we could have waited a day for the resupply from the stagecoach out of Tuba City.
* Long ago, I went west on a train, out of Chicago. On the 2nd morning I woke up in the club car and asked someone where we were. "Colorado? It looks just like Kansas!" Yeah, there's over a hundred miles of plains still from the Kansas border. By lunchtime we could see the front range, and that afternoon we had great viewing as we wound around and through the Rocky Mountains, Salt Lake City bound.
