Check This Out Why Dontcha

From time to time, Erik Ryberg's Bike Lawyer blog has a new entry about his assistant, Lauren, who is now riding her bike across the country, heading east from Tucson. Of course, Lauren and her friend maintain a blog about their experience.

What I like most about the blog: the cool pictures they've taken of road kill they come across in their travels (like the picture above).

When we get in our cars and head out for a good road trip, the view of road kill is obviously different. Lauren's pictures have made me realize I've never really appreciated road kill before. Some pictures are of typical guts on the road, but most of them are interesting, beautiful and often tell a sad story about what cars leave behind on the big open road.

The photo above is one of my favorites, although our art director insists the picture was staged. I'd like to think it wasn't.
