After hiking the grade to the south I decide to explore further north
beyond where I had started the hike. It didn't look like it would take much
time as the grade was about to collide with the highway. The grade is quite
cluttered with new growth at this location. Photo by Dave Dye on June
Just a little further down the grade and I find that the grade has disappeared.
Either it has eroded away or it was lost during highway construction. Highway
145 can be seen below with the stream just beyond it. I'll scamper down the
steep hillside here to get back to my truck. Note the snow capped mountain
in the distance which is near Lizard Head. In a few minutes I will be at
the rest area on Lizard Head pass making lunch with some light snow falling.
