It has to be. White Mountain road tops out at 11,680 ft. I can't think of anything that might even come close? In Colorado they love to carve up peaks with roads; it makes it easier to summit! :wink: None of that nonsense here in Cali though. :P



The tree huggers out here would have a fit if they did!

We only build roads up 14ers so you fat Californians can make it up to the tundra...
The average Colorado peak is 5500' taller than the average California mound so it's natural that CO has mountains covered in roads

I see my comment had the desired effect. :D

Listen the BIG BOY in the lower 48 is here in California and if Colorado is so great, why then does the real estate pricing not reflect it? Also, you can't even open a business in California anymore; the taxes, mismanagement and corruption are so out of control it's hard to survive here! That said our mountains are so beautiful that they still come in droves.

Nuggets went in the first round too.

But the White Mountain road does go all the way to the summit. Just because you aren't allowed to drive a vehicle on it doesn't change things.

Just a word advice, no one has ever cared about the Nuggets...

Why is real estate lower? I dont know, maybe because Colorado didn't corner 60% of the Pacific ocean?? People generally pay more for that, ya know?

Hey I dont want people coming in droves to see Colorado, thats the exact opposite of what 95% of us want. 95% of people who are F-ing up CO are from California.

To that I can only say "welcome to the club". It's been happening to us for 150 years!

Where do you draw the line between northern and southern california, or are we splitting the state 3 ways - southern, central, and northern?

We covered So Cal to Central Cal earlier in the thread. I would say it's Tajon Pass west of the Sierra and Ridgecrest or Mojave on the east side. Central coast I'd say anything north of Santa Barbara.

Central to Northern is a bit trickier. Yosemite? Tahoe? I don't know...

Speaking as someone who lives at the far northern end of things, I think the dividing line between northern and central would be Highway 49, after it has turned to the east. People up this way tend to look at Chico as being at the outer edge of our sphere. When I was in school at CSUC the community tended to orient more towards Redding than Sac. Some modern definitions of "Jefferson" include Plumas, Butte, Glenn and Mendocino Counties. Sac and Tahoe are definitely not in the Northstate. Just my two cents.

Easy there tiger... you're now talking out your ass.

Colorado/Denver would look a lot like Wyoming without Californians. And that's not necessarily a bad thing, but you can't have it both ways. You want education, health care, infrastructure, tax revenue, art, culture, etc, etc, etc? Expect to put up with some California ideas then...

That said, I was born and raised in Los Angeles and I'd still be in California if 1 in 8 Americans didn't live there already... too many people!

In about 10 years, I'll probably move to Wyoming! :lol:


Well put! Hence the song I posted above...
