Default Where in the USA/ Canada is Sean and the Cruiser?

So I'd like to play a game. Each day I'll post up a brief description of the region I'm in and maybe some pictures. No cheating and looking at google maps and extrapolating my position. Person with the most correct guesses will get something Alaskan and a cookie. So here is the start. I'm in a town that has a rich history in the west. One will always know which way he is oriented due to a major landmark.

And some pictures:

Maybe Grand Junction and Colo. Natl. Monument? Or Golden Co and longs peak?

Edit: do we get a hint? Maybe are you on target from your posted interary a few weeks back?

Nope haven't left. Went to Vegas, the car did great and then came home for my buddies spring break. I was supposed to leave this morning actually but the gasket between the exhaust manifold and down tube failed and I sheared both studs off So now I'm at the high school trying to get the manifold off. We'll postpone the game until I actually leave.

It seems like this car doesn't want to go. The brakes failed before i left for Vegas, I learned that my front axle isn't engaging while in Vegas, I think my master cylinder is going south, and now this.

So yesterday I drove through the land of the roughnecks and their rigs... passed through a town that doesn't accept shillings... through the wind farm in the gap... followed the path of two great explorers... and now I'm sitting in the town that holds the record for the rapidest temperature change in the US.

On the cruiser side of things, I really need a new suspension. The sway and roll is extreme, probably exaggerated by the 200 pounds on top. The heater hoses are leaking somewhere and it's going to get kinda cold. The gas mileage is atrocious, in the 10.73 MPG range.

Next stop is Canada, back to my people

Sean

I believe I'm looking at the place you are in now, but don't see your 40.

Don't know where that is Ricardo. The cruiser might be on the side of the road soon though because the alternator is going bad.
