80 miles dirt road. In times when cell phones were still beyond imagination, this trip was a small adventure. This shot was taken close to the summit at almost 2.200m / 7.200 ft. On our way down on the other side, we met a park ranger with a 4x4 who asked us where we came from. He would not believe that we came over Hunter Mountain with our Toyota Celica Supra. "Can't be done with a car like yours". Well, in retrospect I think he was right since this was by far not the worst part of the road, but on the other hand, we were young and brave! ;-)
