Monarch Pass, Colorado
I have been driving over Monarch Pass since the late seventies. Usually I stop at the gift shop on the top. Now I'm sure it was here somewhere......
Oh, there it is!
The first few times I drove here, I was in a Ford Courier pickup truck. It was an automatic and in first gear (with the engine screaming) it would reach 25MPH. As soon as I returned to auto, it would slow down to around 10MPH. causing quite a jam. The Subaru does so much better. It's nice to linger here a while in a different world.
