After dropping into a blast furnace [Death Valley] that severely tries your brake system you ascend to a much cooler place if your transmission holds up [postings along the highway suggest turning off your AC].
Very crisp focus and great photo!
Awesome photo. Glad your car made it.
So am I... we made it back as far as Golden Co. where we had some work done on the brakes but driving with the AC off [it wasn't so bad since it was already after nightfall and the heat had dropped considerably] probably saved our transmission!!!
I understand. I took a straight shift through there years ago. I ran the air, but what I was worried about was the re-capped tires. They didn't fall apart. Kind of lets you know how long ago that was.
