Now the trip back from the 'Left' Coast was an adventure in mountain pass driving. I think we crossed at least 40 of them on the highway from Brookings Harbor Oregon, to Grand junction Colorado. That highway across Nevada and Utah
has the name of the 'Lonliest Highway in America'. We were happy to drive it one time because it is so awe inspiring. I cannot describe the panorama views using mere words. It has to be driven to be appreciated, but not more than once in a 35 foot MH. First gear was used a lot, up as well as down the 7,000 foot passes. The road from Grand Junction Colorado to Cortez Colorado is fascinating and has many historical sites including the water flume hanging on the wall of a canyon for the last hundred years. (and not to be driven again in the MH). The Colorado highway dept needs some lessons from other western states in highway maintance. The scenery is second to none on the entire trip across 4,000 miles of western USA. I woulld not trade our country for any other no matter what it's minor faults are magnified to be.
