Today’s road is like yesterday’s: pretty straight forward.
The road landscape, though, is a whole new story.
There are plenty of dead animals corpses scattered along as I make my way through Kansas. Armadillos, turtles, skunks, raccoons, elks and deer. I almost hit one myself when a raccoon steps onto the road, minding his business and sniffing stuff. Oh, so this is how it happens… They are just busy snuffing around and following the trail and do not see why some asphalt-paved road should be any different from where they came from. Because it’s not like they stop and look right and left for cars (which I honestly thought they did… I’m such a city girl!), right?!
