A Transcontinental Journey
President Dwight D. Eisenhower was thinking like a general when he initiated the construction of the interstate highway system. His experience in WWII taught him the value of good roads for moving equipment and personnel. I’ve witnessed some Armed Forces transport on this trip but overwhelmingly it is commercial trucks plying the roads. There’s a river of goods flowing across America in box trailers and on flatbeds.
On the open highways of the west, heavy trucks rule the road but now and then a jester lightens the way. Apparently, the bicycle is an acceptable mode of transportation on the Utah interstate!
