NO PLACE IN AMERICA HAS THE VIEW YOU WILL SEE FROM THE TOP…

At first reading, this sign on Colorado’s Monarch Pass, seems to claim the most outstanding view in the U.S.  The view is wonderful, but not the best, even in the West.

Then I realized that almost any fast food parking lot can make the same claim, or better.  You won’t see exactly the same view anywhere in the world, the universe, or even whatever’s bigger than that.
