Wisdom from the Kwik Stop in Penrose, CO

Pretty much every time I go to Cañon City

Denver to Canon City

to visit a client who is, as Judge Williams would say, a guest of the state of Colorado, I stop at the Kwik Stop in Penrose.  (Well, not actually downtown Penrose; more like suburban Penrose.)

The Kwik Stop offers Subway sandwiches and good ol fashioned Colorado wisdom, the latter generally involving some combination of dramatically-posed talon-baring eagles, firearms, and gentle suggestions concerning what folks can do if they don’t approve of those things.  But occasionally there are nuggets of truly wise wisdom.  For example:

And finally, my feeling about camping, or really any outdoor activity.

On the road again!

Road trip to Cañon City, then on to Santa Fe.  Here are some photos from the road.  Santa Fe photos coming soon.

I’ve made the trip to Cañon City with co-counsel a number of times to visit clients at one of its correctional facilities.  The cool thing about driving alone is that I finally got to stop and take a picture of this, Route 115 between Colorado Springs and Cañon City.

Did they find the giant insect while exploring space?  Unfortunately, as you can see from the sign, the museum is currently closed, so that question will have to be answered some other day.

I spent much of the drive on back roads, which provided constant reminders why I love the West.  This is from Route 50 heading out of Cañon City.

I loved the drive and the quality time with my brother in Santa Fe.  Good to be back home in front of the Broncos game now.
