The Marias Pass Revisited.

What goes in must come out again. On our way out of Columbia Falls, MT, we had to go back through the Marias pass, this time during the daytime.Of course, we did have the advantage of having been over this road before, but it looks a little different when you can see what is or isn't on the other side of the guardrail.
Here's an idea of what it looked like from the passenger seat.

We begin with a little bit of a curve.

Then we go for a little slope.

A little more curve.

Back the other way.

Shall we add some fog?

Sure. Let's add some fog.
The Commodore can handle it.

Then came the dark.

Aww, we drove this in the dark already, remember?

The sky looks cool reflected in the road.

Sometimes, you just have to look at the scenery.

The effect is kind of like stepping into one of Bob Ross's paintings.

One last little slope...

A little bit of traffic...

And civilization finally appears.

And then, just when we thought we were safe!


  1. Yup, that was about our reaction as we sat on the side of the road and watched the house pass within six feet of us. LOL
