Took the Tacoma on road trip to Colorado. Pics inside!

Drove up to Vail, CO to visit my brother in law, and figured I'd snap some shots along the way. Let me know what you guys think!



Route 66 in Amarillo, TX



Top of Pikes Peak, Elevation 14,110 feet.




At the base of Mt. Democrat, elevation 14148. The first 14000' peak hike I've done.



Driving back from Mt. Democrat after the hike.



A little trail driving up to Piney Woods Lake.


Played a round of golf at Beaver Creek Golf Club, when I got out to the valet, this was parked next to me. The valet guys must see them every day because I walked out and said "Wow, what a machine..." and his response was "Yeah man, hey where did you get this locking tailgate (dynolock)? I can't believe it opens with the key fob!"



This is just at some gas station in middle of the nowhere New Mexico. Thought it was a cool shot.



Great Sand Dunes National Park in Southern Colorado. That sand is HOT...would not recommend hiking it barefoot like some idiots (me).

Great trip, too bad it's back to work now.

I once floored a new V6 Taurus at 10,000+ ft in Colorado. On loose gravel, it couldn't spin the tires. Rental car. I think in the city it was a bit peppier, but it makes the case for turbos and superchargers.

Nice pics. Makes me want to burn some gas myself.

I didn't really notice a difference, but I'm notorious for not noticing things.

Any loss I felt, I probably attributed to the extreme topography and driving uphill a lot. Didn't even enter my mind about the elevation itself. I'm sure they both played a factor.

With modern fuel injection and computer controls it can remap on the fly to compensate for the loss of incoming air (detected by the MAF). You'll still probably feel a bit less power but it'll be relatively negligible compared to an old carb you'd have to manually tune for it.

Interesting. I didn't take that into consideration. Thanks.

The pictures vary since they are from the whole road trip. For reference Pikes Peak is near Colorado Springs, and Mt. Democrat is halfway between Vail and Denver.

I'd been skiing there in the winter, but never been in the summer. Everything looks so different without the snow.
