From the Road

I'm away from home right now, so blogging will probably be light, although one can never tell.

We just spent a few days in the Phoenix Scottsdale Arizona area. Their road system and highways were very impressive. Of course, they have millions more people than Ada County has, but every one of their major roads is beautifully landscaped both on the sides and in the median strip. The landscaping obviously fits with the desert environment.

The highway interchanges were likewise lovely. The bridges were decorated and there were pedestrian walkways over the highways that had decorative ironwork.

All in all it was a very nice experience.

I know that we have little money to do the kinds of things that the Phoenix area does with their roads to make them very pleasant to be on ---but ---it would be nice to dream.

I noticed and ad on the home page of the Statesman online edition for ACHD and Commuteride. Are those ads free?
