Decided to chance it today and ride highway 155 through Shirley Meadows.

The sigh was out that said "Extremely Icy Conditions next 10 miles". It was a warm day and no storms so we went for it.

There was no ice or snow on the road today but there was a lot of sand on this road, with some wet spots.

It dropped from from 60 degrees at the bottom of the hill to 40 degrees at the summit where the pass reaches 6,100 ft

We reached the Alta Sierra Ski area at 6:00 pm and rode to Lake Isabella and then into Ridgecrest.

Larryboy was right in that we should have taken 178 instead of 155. The sand made it a very slow ride and any lite rain with freezing temps would have made this road unrideable.
