To the mountains

The Black Hills is as far west as we have been & we are somewhat nervous about gradients (up & down) onwards this year to Cody & Yellowstone - advice & comments please.

You might want to order the book, "Mountain Directory for Truckers - West". We're in the mountains all the time and still refer to it. It gives you mile by mile on what to expect.

Another endorsement for the Mountain Directory, Western states. We are just returning from YNP and departed there to the East toward Cody. We had no problems nor "white knuckled" driving situations. Sure, there were some steep grades, both up and down, but nothing that made me uncomfortable. I will say that continuing on eastward from Cody, the grades and switchbacks get more extreme, so we went southeast on WY120 from Cody to Casper. All in all, I enjoyed the drive.

I don't know why the Mountain Directory is so expense at Amazon. We paid $15 a few years ago at CW; check their price first! But GET it.

We ordered it a couple months ago directly from the author for a whole lot less than Amazon.
