I feel that part of I-25 feels inaccurate in Castle Rock’s absence.
Pikes Peak's absence is far more glaring to me, substituting it for a low ridge. They definitely had room for it. I suppose someone could always add it later.

Re: Colorado Discussion Thread

So, I am currently in Garden of the Gods. When they said it was going to be a bit of a hidden road (it is signed), I wasn't expecting them to put the main formations (Kissing Camels, Balanced Rock, etc.) in along with the whole loop drive. Rather impressive and unexpected. Sadly, as other videos hav...

Re: Colorado Discussion Thread

Well, this looks just about like home. They nailed the skyline and the DIA approach looks fantastic. Hopefully the capitol building will make an appearance. And since I was out on a fall color trip, I missed their 550 video a couple weeks back and just now saw it. Ouray to Red Mountain Pass looks pe...

Re: Idaho Discussion Thread

Regarding the language SCS used in the latest blog post, I chalk that up to them being foreign to the US and not fully polished in English. That first picture they posted is at the following location between Moore and Mackay, my favorite town in Idaho, mainly for its location to all of the great mou...

Re: Colorado Discussion Thread

There is no ambiguity about what the Western Slope is, and it does not start at Vail. It is everything west of the divide, therefore it starts above the tunnel. It simply refers to the direction of the watershed. Come on now, ALT2870!

Re: Colorado Discussion Thread

Independence Pass/CO-82 has a 35-foot length restriction, so that and Aspen will not be in. Box trucks can do it, and semis have, but cause major traffic jams in the few 1.5-lane sections on the west side, thus not legally permitted.

Re: Colorado pre-research tips

Another place that recently came to mind is the Denver Coliseum along I-70. It is a signature landmark rolling through town and I think should be a can't-miss asset.

I'm going to find it interesting how scs handles the Rockies and the bypass of the Eisenhower Tunnel the trucks have to take since they're not permitted in the tunnel.
Only hazardous material loads aren't allowed in the tunnel. All other loads are.

Re: Idaho pre-research tips

I love Idaho. I wish some locals would have chimed in here for landmarks. I've spent five weeks worth of picture-taking trips here over the last few years, so I'll add a few suggestions. This video is of US 93 which I am sure makes the game. It is primarily mostly Idaho, but it also ventures into Mo...

Re: Colorado pre-research tips

I believe there was some talk early in this thread about highway 550, whether it would be included or not. Since it is present in New Mexico, I'm pretty confident SCS would continue the rest of its path north to Montrose, where highway 50 takes over to Grand Junction. It is a main highway, and the M...
