Buttermilk Road Jeep Trip — 2018

Buttermilk Road Headed Towards the Sierras

This is our third trek up Buttermilk Road. Our first two trips were in 2015 (Jeepin’ Buttermilk Road).

In our first outing, we went as far as the “bare tree” . . .

In our second trip in May 2015, we made the complete trip — through the Woods and over the mountain ridge (the “hairy” part of the trip).

The Woods

For our third trip last Thursday, we decided not to travel over the mountain ridge as once was enough. However, we went as far as the Woods. Then we doubled back and wen up Horton Lakes road for a mile or so as the road was incredibly rough and gaining elevation fairly quickly.

    Rocky Road is an understatement. Looks like the land of 1000 potholes. My thought is about…what if you get someplace and can’t get back??? Helluva ride, folks. I felt the bumps. Kath
