It's not at the Continental Divide as suggested. I-80 crosses the Continental Divide in Wyoming, first at Milepost 158 (Elevation 6930 Feet) and again at Milepost 206 (Elevation 7000 Feet), at the Hadsell Road Exit. I seriously doubt I-80 actually makes it to 14,000 feet.

That said, I can believe that photo is I-80. Just east of Evanston, WY, there are gates to close the Interstate when the snows are too bad for travel. The only reasons snow don't get any deeper than they do during the winter is the winds blow it off. I was in Evanston on May 22, 2010. They got 2" of snow that morning. There is a reason I live in AZ and not WY!

I think it's I-70 that's closer to that height, though its 12,000 feet, not 14,000 going through Colorado at the Eisenhower Tunnel.

That statement speaks volumes! I'm with you.

We've become half time Arizona residents too... for the same reason. Just got in from today's round of golf. Low 70s heading near 80 in a few days. Many of our winter neighbors are from Wyoming. Best of both worlds I guess.

1st Cougar: Probably felt like 14,000 in a snow storm as if it wouldn't quit no matter what you did. I thought maybe I missed a turn somewhere when I saw the photo showing 14,000 and I know I never been that high on 80. The 7000 ranges sounds more like it for road elevations. I didn't need airliner oxygen mask crossing those mountains.

There is a CG between Payson and Heber, AZ that I think is 8000'. Even saw "Brown" driving through it. The power loss on a non-turbo engine is like going from a dragster to a pedal bike.

I used to take care of and service the Mercedes of the county coroner. His personalized license plate was "CUT UP".

You might be a bit "high" too.

Well, it is on asphalt and roads are made with asphalt.
