luvavacation Posted November 16, 2006 #1 Share Posted November 16, 2006 This summer, we went out to Durango, CO, from the midwest, and we found out that my youngest daughter did not care for mountain driving, as there are no guardrails but many steep drops. However, we did not realize how frightened she was until dinner this evening, when I was discussing our planned drive out to Emerald Lake when in Skagway's port. I had shown my family the route (thanks to a link today!), and my youngest (11) became quite frightened at the prospect of more mountain driving! I won't let her fears hold us, or her, back, we are still planning on doing the drive, and DH is a very safe driver, but if I at least know what to expect, perhaps I can help her prepare better! So, are there guardrails alongside the road when you drive through the mountains to Emerald Lake? Or is it not really steep, no big drop-offs or perhaps nice wide shoulders? Oddly enough, my youngest is usuallly my fearless one! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
