    Ok, so I tried to find a thread for the highest elevation Tacoma and I did not see one so here goes. Please post a picture of your Tacoma with a GPS or some other altimeter reading. Let’s see who can show the highest elevation (and let’s not include Tacoma’s inside airplanes although if you want to include those pictures that would be cool to). Please indicate roughly where the photo was taken.
    And let’s keep this open for all generations.

    And maybe just post a pic from the highest elevation you have had your Tacoma-even if someone has already posted higher.

    Thanks

    Late 90's we would truck assist ski from top of Dolly Varden Gulch( on Mt Bross, Colorado )on 4th of July for a couple years in a row. Top elevation of gulch 13200', down to Windy Ridge 11700'( there are 1000 year old Bristlecone pine trees). I did summit Mt Bross once (14177') in my 98 before the trail washed out and private owners closed it. It has reopened since then but I haven't there in many years.

    I'll look for some old school print photos, I know I have some of my friends and I skiing, and at least one of my Dad holding on to Tacoma with death grip at 13200'. Dad and I ran out of trail, snowed over. He asked how we were getting down, I said, back down to the switchback. Never seen that look on his face before.

    The canopy is the best part.
    No photos yet but I'm hoping this summer I'll be able to drive the road up to Canoe Mountain, which is the highest mountain road (gravel, rock and scree, rough in places) in BC. 2628m or 8622ft. Beautiful views!

    Don't have the GPS/exact elevation where I parked at but this is the highest driveable point on Mt Antero around 13700-13800 ft.

    I'm planning to head back later this year to hike to the summit this time. Way too windy for me when I was up there.
