There was quite the debate at the top. No one really wanted to ride up the RUG, no one really wanted to take the 185 mile alternate route out, few thought they had enough fuel to make it to the gas station at the 120 mile mark....
A group of side-by-sides and ATV riders stopped to chat with us at the top. They informed us there was another option! We all listened intently as they directed us to the yellow brick road that would take us safely back to Mammoth in just a short 12 miles or so!!
We headed back down the hill, in search of the ribbons that would mark our escape route. FOUND!
You call that a road?
