Stopped on the interstate

I was driving down I-80 to Salt Lake City. I was about two thirds of the way down the canyon when I saw all lanes of traffic at a complete stop. Damn. Must be a wreck.

Suddenly I see a series of explosions go off at the top of the cliff to my right. I realized that the rock quarry, which is stupidly placed right next to six lanes of interstate highway, was blasting. I grabbed my little Canon camera I keep in the truck and snapped a few shots.

Obviously I missed the explosions as they happened. It was such a surprise.

We had to wait about 15 minutes for all this dust to clear before they would let traffic start to move again.

Next time I'll be read for them.
