This is the Deadman Pass area of Cabbage Hill, near Pendleton, Oregon.The beauty of this landscape belies its reputation, one nearly all long-haul truckers know.
From the forested summit of the Blue Mountains, Interstate 84 snakes down a long, treacherous grade that is infamous for burning up truck brakes. It's wise to keep an eye in your rear-view mirror for runaways. I've often seen acrid-smelling blue smoke boiling from the wheels of the semis, and imagined a hard-bitten driver behind the wheel mouthing fervent prayers under his breath.
A popular T-shirt in the truck-stop gift shop at the base of the mountain says it all: "I survived Cabbage Hill."
