How were condition at that altitude (snow, temperature, difficulty to breath)? In Europe nobody would go at that altitude without being an expert hiker\climber, but also because our highest road is around 1,500 meters lower than that!
It is easier to notice the lower atmosphere density if you start climbing a bit and walking fast.

The Rockies are very different than the Alps. The surrounding plains are gentle-slopped towards the Mississippi river, Denver is already 1610m high. There are also different trees than in the Alps, and everything is much further from the nearest ocean than the Alps as well, which results on powdery dry snow.

The road was okay, not really difficult to drive, I think paved high-mountain roads here in US all let two wide cars pass each other with ease, which is very different than certain passes in the Alps (Passo di Gavia or Furkapass for instance).

The Loveland Pass on US-6 was fun to drive as well. Fortunately I didn't get stuck behind any truck uphill, but I saw some trucks followed by a queue of cars in the other direction.

Today we left our hotel in Moab very early to watch the sunrise near some interesting rock formations, and now I'm just relaxing a bit before heading to another viewpoint and trail 80km away. This area of Utah is very beautiful but distances are far. It also looks totally different than the Colorado mountains.

A plus about the Kia Cee'd is that it comes with a 7 year warranty. So even a second hand car has several years of warranty left.

Purchasing a brand new car is a waste of money in my opinion. The write off in the first 3 - 4 years is as much as 40-50%.
Kia Cee 'd is the nicest one in my opinion.

Any consideration for Mercedes E 550 coupe or Audi A5 ? I find them quite attractive and am looking at them on the secondary market (faute d'argent...) I like the Audi style better and the manual gearbox but am scared of making Audi-repairs... Mercedes engine wins though, twin turbo V8, droool and economical on Autostradzie!

Greetings from Leptokaria, Pieria, Greece!
Everything seems to be normal, apart from the small row near the bank. The stores are full with big variety of items and there are no shortages or rationing.

Had a holiday in Denmark, in the South Juthland near RingkÝping. Made an interesting observation: While driving in the evening (after about 2100) through rural villages, nobody were seen. Most of the windows were black: lights were on in a few houses only.

Do Danes really go sleep early in the evening, is it immoral to stay awake after 9 pm, or what is this about?
