So, you have two guys of approximately the same age (and regular readers will know what that means) in a car driving the six hours from Salt Lake City down to the Southeast Utah town of Bluff (population 150+) through the awesome landscape of red rocks, wide open vistas, mountains, mesas, and deserts.
What’s on the musical playlist when you have all day and long stretches of lonesome highway?
Why the Stones (Sticky Fingers, double album with Eric Clapton playing on Brown Sugar). Lyle Lovett and his Large Band. Merle Haggard and Big City. And most appropriately, Leon Russell and the Shelter People singing Stranger in a Strange Land.
What better song to remind you that you’re not in Kansas anymore.
Tom and I certainly tested the speakers in our little rental car. So crank it up!
More to come…
