When I camped at Muley Point, during the day there were a lot of those tour SUVs with the luggage on top stopping by for the views. BTW, one wants to be careful where one walks around out there because the very fragile macrobiotic soil growths are easily damaged and the recovery time is in years!

My hat's off to guys who would drive a large truck into Telegraph Creek!
Well I made it down telegraph creek... a bit white knuckle.
I had this cheap canon digital camera mounted to the dash. it takes pretty poor video but maybe it shows a little of what its like to take a 20% rutted road downhill with a Ford Ranger and a 17 Casita.

I'll compare this to "the hill" later.

Yow! If I tried any of this it would have to be really early in the AM so there would be less chance of running into someone and I would have all day to get out of a fix.
