from us there are many mountains, but few can be climbed by car, The Suiss Alpine passes vary from 500 meters above sea level to 2478m.
In my region (canton Ticino) we have the second lowest (Monte ceneri 554 S.l.m), and the highest (Nufenen 2'478 S.l.m).

This in the picture is the St. Gotthard pass.

But Pikes Peak is really impressive ... 4'302 m .. really nice.

I went up with Whee to the Pikes Peak when he went up in the grey/white Wolseley 1000 in his photo. I've also done the run in a Moke.

In Colorado there is even a higher drive than Pikes Peak. Next year the national Mini Meet is in Colorado. Plan to go and plan for some high drives!

Not MY Mini as the thread heading asks but does this qualify as the highest a Mini has been taken?

Caption says: The works Morris Cooper S #144 Timo Makinen/Paul Easter 41st and #178 Simo Lampinen/M Wood. Plane is the Douglas DC4 based ATL-98 Carvair.
