SAN FRANCISCO — Where I last left off, in northeastern Colorado, I was about to take a few days off to relax in Boulder, Colo. I used part of that down time to catch up on writing from earlier in my trip. Then I had to get back on the road.
Writing, researching, driving long distances and making stops along the way aren’t an ideal mix. But overall, this has certainly been a grand trip.
A quick and timely preview: I’m happy to report that I did indeed reach Lincoln Park in San Francisco, the western terminus of the Lincoln Highway. That’s where, in front of the Legion of Honor, the Lincoln Highway Association’s 100th Anniversary Tour kicked off its western car caravan on Sunday morning. (I arrived at the tail end of the departure of the vintage cars just in time to grab a few quick photos. Then poof! The Lincoln Highway celebrants disappeared into the fog.)
