2014 JGC on Mt. Washington Auto Road (today!)

I had the chance to make the run up the Mt. Washington Auto Road today. Tops out at 6,288 ft after an 8 mile pretty narrow road that they have, in my opinion, adequately named 'the road into the clouds'. Ton of fun! As much as I bitch about the 8 speed tranny's klunkyness in its day to day travels, it was a seamless animal on those steep windy inclines.

That is quite a view. I took that trip in '04 in my TrailBlazer.

I can almost smell the fresh air.

And...

I want to see the free bumper sticker on the back of your WK2:D

How'd the brakes do on the way down? Any significant fade or smoke?

Nope, none of that. Ran it in 1st and 2nd the whole way down which did most of the speed control but no braking problems. While my car slams from 2nd to 3rd just getting out of the garage in the morning, it was pretty seamless on the auto road.

Put in it low range fwd and you won't touch the brakes until Route 16.
