2014 Jeep Cherokee: A Milestone in Moab Worth Celebrating

June 19, 2015

2014 Jeep Cherokee

I know that mileage milestones are just numbers. They don't mean anything in the grand scheme. That said, I've always paid attention when the odometer in my own cars rolled over from a row of nines to a bunch of zeroes. It always felt like something just happened that was worth celebrating, if only for a moment.

That ritual has lost some of its luster since rolling mechanical odometers have given way to graphically-represented ones. There's no longer the rolling tenths digit that heralds the approaching moment, no jerky motion or temporary misalignment of the new zero digits that seemed like some sort of reluctance on the car's part to grow older.

It's much more clinical nowadays. Our 2014 Jeep Cherokee 4x4's odometer simply winked from 19999 to 20000 in an instant. It's similar to the time readout on my microwave oven or coffee maker, but without the winking colon of the passing seconds to give it some sort of rhythm.

The place it happened, on the other hand, was spectacular - and very appropriate for a Jeep.

The spot was about 20 miles upstream of Moab, Utah as I was driving alongside the banks of the Colorado River towards my overnight stop at the Sorrel River Ranch. Castle Valley, Professor Valley and other nearby locales have been the backdrop for many a western movie, and for good reason; this place is simply stunning in every direction you look. You owe it to yourself to come for a visit.
