Subaru Outback Land

Rinar and I are on a little get-away to Denver, Colorado. We are renting a car: a 2009 Subaru Outback. It is a nice little car. And I think that at least 40% of people who live between the Denver airport and Estes Park, Colorado would agree with us.

We took a long drive to go and see the Rocky Mountains National Park. Unfortunately, it was very overcast and raining (which I did not mind, as sometimes I forget what rain actually looks like), so we did not see any mountains. I am pretty sure that they were there because there were switchbacks and cliffy borders to the road. But, not one mountaintop in view anywhere.

Therefore, since we could not enjoy the panoramic view of the rocky mountains, our attention was focused on the road quite a bit. After just a little while, we came to the realization that almost every drives a Subaru Outback. Good heavens...it was craziness. In a group of five cars that would pass us going the other way, at least one, and many times two of the cars would be Subaru's. Every time we parked the car, we parked next to a Subaru. When we got gas, there were four vehicles filling up...including ours, three were Subaru Outbacks. The other one was a tractor.

It was rather amusing. I do have a picture of the gas station stop, but I will post it when I get back.

Do any of you have Subaru's? If you do, you will feel right at home in Colorado.

I bet the Subaru smells better than the Odyssey ;). How did that turn out? Hope you are having fun.
