Finding a good place to eat on our annual drives to and from our summer apartment in Aspen, 1,200 miles from San Francisco, used to be a challenge. Our original route, once past the beautiful Sierra Nevada range, took us across the bleak northern half of Nevada, past the Salt Flats of Utah, through the Wasatch Range and across I-70 to Colorado. It pretty much left good food behind at Reno.
Driving through Las Vegas adds only about 50 extra miles to our route and represents a vast improvement in food and scenery. Three years ago we discovered a friendly wine bar in Grand Junction where we look forward to a glass of good wine and creative food at the end of the day's drive.
