Highway 285, Colorado, USA.
Along this highway that winds down from a mountain pass on the way to Denver, CO, two signs advertising cabins and lodges show up. Location is everything, but placement may be more important. These signs appear right next to a domed pump station. Due to the weathering of the signs, it’s difficult to even see that mileage to the cabins is actually displayed. So, a person who wants that rustic mountain experience may be convinced that the pump station is really some kind of high tech or really no-frills yurt.
Thirteen miles later…after you’ve forgotten about your really “rustic” stay, appears the real Glen-Isle cabins, which actually look quite charming.
Location, Location, Location: Glen-Isle seems to have the location, but the placement of the advertising (which I guess is location, too) is a little bit off.
We’re on the road now, and there isn’t a day that passes that I don’t say to myself, “Thank goodness for my GPS.” Signs can be missing, misleading, or misplaced. If I have an address, I’m golden. ~James
I hear you, James! I’m am starting to embrace the maps function on my iPhone, since it’s so helpful.
