Also those look like some beautiful roads to drive on, I'm jealous, the only thing near as nice as that in my vicinity is Hells Cannon, and it's not as nice as those look.
The section of the devil's triangle between between Petros and Lake City is a pretty awesome drive and one of my personal favorites. The mountain is a hot spot for logging, coal, and gas wells so you always have a lot of big trucks driving up it and as such, the curves all have very wide lanes and are banked. The wide lane turns are great in car because it lets you easily flick the tail out without crossing the double yellow.
What's crazy is how fast those massive coal and logging trucks drive the mountains at 80k lbs. A lot of times they fall of the cliffs and die, but it's still a sight to see regardless. Trucks like this filled to the brim with coal, rolling smoke, jake break sounding like a jack hammer, and rowing through the gears (some of them have 5+4's). Old macks.
