MY first 350 Mile road trip with the SLK

Beautiful day in Seattle and great day for a road trip .
Temperature in the mid 80's great drive to test out the wind deflector
Drove over 3 mountain passes; Stevens Pass 4000 ft to the east, then south over Blewett Pass 4100 ft and back to Seattle over the Snoqualmie Pass 3000 ft.

350 MI and 6.5 hrs later and temperature drops of 35 degrees had a fun filled day.
Overall 21.6 MPG is not bad for a V-8 with sometimes getting the needle beyond the 100+MPH mark

Some pictures below of the mountains that still have plenty of snow.

Ok thanks for setting me straight.

I guessed the reason I put it in the KILL stories section since I spend at least 15 minutes washing away the Bugs that were killed on my windshield, bumper and hood when we got back
