The ups and downs certainly do add up, even here in "flatland" Salt Lake City, Elevation 4,330 feet. Drive 40 minutes east to Park City, and they vary from 6,500 to 10,000 feet. Yup, definitely "flatland"! <G> Heck, until I first went to Denver in 1983, I had *NEVER* been anyplace where I could not see mountains! Even in the Nevada or Arizona or even the Wyoming deserts (through which once roamed Steam Era Freight Cars).

It's all the vertical movements that add up. On a flat map it only looks like
3 miles. You middle western flatlanders don't appreciate our elevation changes.
