Steep Grades

On our latest adventure we camped at Clark Fork Camp Ground 6200' off hwy 108 in Stanislaus National Forest. It was a short drive up the hill to Sonora Pass 9624'. The grade on the East side is seriously steep and twisty there is a 1 mile stretch of 15% down hill and then a section of 25% down hill grade with many twists. It makes my hair dance just thinking about taking my trailer over that route to hwy 395, glad we left the trailer in camp. We did see a brave soul in a 5th wheel rig coming down as we were headed back up, his eyes were wide open. Cant post photo's here for some reason. Maybe to large. I will put some on the members photo site.

Geez! And here I was thinking that the person who directed us up and down Buffalo Pass (14 percent up and down) was seriously disturbed.

Oh, I forgot. I'm the one who directed us to go that route.

It is a beautiful but challenging drive.
