1996 - Vail Pass

This shot was taken at Vail Pass, while Shem and I were waiting for my car to be fixed in Vail. We were driving my 91 VW Fox from VT to CA, when the alternator had died in Nebraska on Easter Sunday. We bought another battery for it, drove 300 miles and tried to get it fixed in Denver, but of course it was Easter Sunday and no garages were open. So we decided to roll the dice and headed up the hill to Vail. The whole drive up I was sweating about that long tunnel we'd have to pass through, and how if the car battery died, it would shut the whole car down, lights and all, and we'd be stuck in the middle of the tunnel and probably get rammed into in the darkness and die. On Easter. Anyway, we made it, the car quit just as we pulled into Vail, and pushed it right into a service station. The next day I shot this image. Ali Goulet has awesome style.
