Not too much further down the road was the red light. I waited for a few minutes but a pilot care never showed up. Neither did any traffic at all, from either direction. It was kind of weird. So I just went, and pretty soon found myself behind a line of cars heading south. There never was a pilot car.
Lot of old mines in the area.
This is historic country. Jim Bridger. Lewis and Clark. Mountain men.
I made it to the Chico Hot Springs Hotel just before the downpour.
