RAH, can you provide the BLM (?) link for this graph? the map & graph are a great planning tool.
The grade from SLT (Glenwood probably more accurately) is Spooner Grade over to Carson City which has an elevation of 7146, yet the graph shows 8940.
Maybe the graph represents the elevation of the peaks adjacent Spooner Summit.
None the less, I have been looking for this type of elevation material for both I 84, 70 & 80 for a trip to/from MO, with a stop in Reno.
