Road Trip

The last time I was in a vehicle of any kind was December 27, 2008, returning from Christmas in Bend, OR, with my family. There are some excellent road cuts on Route 20 through the Cascades, but nothing like the above photo. Pictures like this make my mouth water... How I would love to walk out this area. However, the an article in the NYT tells me this might not be the best place to geologize.
SAROBI, Afghanistan — Even in a nation beset by war and suicide bombings, you would be hard-pressed to find anything as reliably terrifying as the national highway through the Kabul Gorge.
