Tejon Pass is I-5 (Grapevine) in CA, south of Bakersfield.
Might you be thinking Raton Pass on the CO/NM border?

DUH

You can tell that I am not at ease with this trip. Raton Pass !! That is what I need to know about.Recently retired and we are ready to go but need to get away from the local trips and go see the sites we have never seen.

Weather on on Raton Pass is usually predictable. One to two days after a storm hits the west coast it will arrive there. Castle Rock between Denver and The Springs can experience nasty weather in the winter.
IMHO I-25 is a good N.S. route, more reliable then I-15.
East-West routes: I-70, 80, 90 & 94 are less predictable in the winter.

Raton Pass is about 8000 ft ... the grades up and down are mostly 5% ... the road is all 4 lane divided highway with nice shoulders and guard rails.

Use your exhaust brake on the descent and you will have no problem.
