Monument Not A Traffic Stopper, But Worth A Drive

Colorado Springs may not have an actual spring, but it does have a statue to its founder Gen. William Jackson Palmer. In fact, Sunday marks the 140th anniversary of the city's founding. Part of our summer road trip series, Honey Stop The Car!, Colorado Public Radio's Mike Lamp tells us about Palmer, whose statue is in the middle of a busy intersection.
