Last of truck ramp

This is the last series of shots for the truck ramp, everyone is probably glad to here that, nothing like beating a subject to death. I said in one of my earlier post on the old Blewett highway that I like old highways, so I had to put this shot in of the old road. You can see the current highway in the top left of the picture, this is about halfway down the hill.

Here we are at the bottom of the hill as you can see we are now at 785 feet in elevation, so in 6 miles we have dropped 2027 feet. You can see the bottom end of the truck ramp on the left side of the road where the small sign is, and the valley the road goes through.


The next two shots are of the actual truck ramp, and I confess I took these shots while I was driving down the road , but I thought it was pretty safe as there were no other cars on the road, and if I got in trouble the truck ramp was there to stop me, ha ha.



I guess this sign is so people don't stop or park on the ramp.

Great series of photos. Wow...that is quite the "hill" to have to drive down!

A fine series of photos documenting this very steep road! I like the series that leads us up to the ramp itself. I can't imagine having the brakes fail and having to face actually using a ramp to stop.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved.
