And then there were some things that were a bit annoying, like one-way bridges. Be careful out there!

What are fuel prices there like compared to where you left?
This mirrors my experience so far. It's jaw-droppingly beautiful though. The pictures don't remotely capture it.

My last fill here was almost exactly $10USD per gallon for premium. My last fill in Minnesota was something like $5.40 for premium.

I'd wager the average vehicle here gets maybe 1.5x the fuel economy of the average in the US.
