I haven't done a whole lot with Frontier Days the last couple of years. And I was reminded of exactly why this year. Traveling on US-85 can be extremely aggravating at times. Some people will pace UP 844 and block traffic behind them. On this evening, I was one of the those being blocked. This pacing shot (which is by no means one of my best) was the closest to the head end of the train I could get from La Salle all the way down to Brighton!
