Go West XIII - Pearl Street Cadillac

Our Friends' Soul Reflected on a Cadillac Door, Pearl Street, Boulder, Colorado

While walking around the Pearl Street district of Boulder, I spotted this reflection on the door of a late model Cadillac. Funny that it was a Cadillac, since we stopped a few days earlier at Cadillac Ranch in Texas.

Incidentally, this luxury car was named after Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac, a French explorer and adventurer, who helped found the town of Detroit in 1701.

So it was appropriate that we encountered these Cadillacs while on our road trip... after all, Becky and I were doing our own version of exploring and adventuring, albeit 300 years after Monsieur Cadillac.

  10. Good old Cadillac!
    So what's in this reflection?
    A caravan door?

    There's another interesting reflection in the Cadillac door handle?
    So is that the boulder of Boulder in Colorado?
