Talking 260,000 on the clock, 14,000 on the altimeter

...and she gets up and down "America's highest auto road" without a hitch!





The girlfriend took a short video through the upper switchbacks, pretty boring really - you kinda have to be there to realize just how spectacular those sights are!

Errr, 14,260ft is 2.7 miles. Perhaps the road is 14 miles long?
