that first pic? to the right was a beautiful waterfall (snowmelt & rain)
running over the 'road' of course, about a foot deep or so, but I cant be sure, as by the time I got there, it was dark.
yeah. blacker'n a miners ass.
not much fun, but hey, its sposed to be an adventure, right?
I too saw the map, & thought 'that looks ok'
the good thing is, I had planned to take that route last year with the chopper, but missed the turnoff.
Would I do it again? hell yes! But not after dark!
(I almost thought about stopping to kiss that new tarmac!)
