Absolutely drive this pass. Just drive it slowly, with great care and attention - Instagram will keep. Try to be patient with your passenger when they seem tempted to grip the dashboard or the seat - it's *really* not you, it's the precipitous thousand foot drop-off they're facing. Having been both passenger and driver, it can be terrifying on that side of the vehicle, and 20 mph can feel like 100 mph. When you get to the continental divide at the top, stop, get out, and take a minute to simply marvel at it all. It's an absolutely spectacular view, and in the summer afternoons you're usually treated to a rainbow or two kicked up by the storms in the valleys below.
Important note: the pass is closed for the winter, and when open, vehicles over 35 ft in length face a $1500 fine if they attempt the beautiful but hair raising hairpin turns.
