Whenever I’m zipping around on the freeway, I always wish that I could just pause for a minute and take some photos. Seriously, the freeway has the best view of the city, of the mountains, and of the valley. But unfortunately, there’s not a lot of pausing on the freeway. Until last night.
I was leaving Smith’s Marketplace on 33rd South and 30th East (I was on the hunt for Lego Figurines and heard they had some. They didn’t.) and decided at the last minute to turn left and go on 215 and check out the other Smith’s downtown. The traffic was clear, so I pulled out. And then realized there is an island in the middle of the lane. Not a big one. Just a small one, but by the time I noticed it was there, I was in the middle of the road. I just kept going. As I was turning left to get on the freeway, I saw the blue and red lights flashing behind me. Oops. I pulled over on the freeway ramp and explained to the officer. He took my license and went to run it. (I know all about these things now because I write the manuals on how to do it.) And meanwhile, I got my wish. I got to check out the view from the freeway. And I happened to have my camera, so I took advantage.
And my luck stuck because I just got a warning.
