At 7,834 feet, Raton Pass at the Colorado-New Mexico border now ranks in my book as one of the best passes in the country. As you know, I do not "do" mountains and although I was a bit anxious, the "Mountain Directory West" assured us it was an easy ride. They were correct. The 6% grades were each no more than a mile long then the hiway flattened out before the next grade came along.

I can say to my fellow mountain challenged people with total confidence it was a "piece of cake!"
