Elevation data comes from different sources and may not reflect true
driving conditions, so talk to other RVers if you're concerned about
steep grades. If you're planning to drive in the winter and you want to avoid snow, check the road conditions from Minneapolis to Palm Springs. You can also view a 3-D map of Minneapolis elevation or Palm Springs elevation.
