This was an excellent run. My 15+ year old daughter (shown) asked at the beginning of the day why I had kept my FJ40 for 23 years, when I had bought and sold so many other vehicles. I think she might fully understand now.
In spite of her, um, years of driving (15 hours on a permit, perhaps), she drove the last mile to the summit, including the fairly evil 'last switchback'. She had an ear-to-ear perma-grin. Thanks to Rising Sun for helping make this a memorable day for both of us!
