Days later, my brother was kind enough to take us all out on a drive through the country and down Hinkle Mountain Road just so I would know what I missed.
Loaded Up & Ready for Our Adventure
It is hard to tell in this picture how steep the road was but it was precisely at this point that the wisdom of staying off this road with my car was validated. I mean for goodness sake it was so steep that we were sliding forward in the bed of the truck!
My brother calculated that it was roughly a 1200 foot drop.
Beautiful sights to be seen along the way.
But heed my warning, no matter what your gps tells you,
this is not a road for the faint of heart or car!
