This is the road up Fish Creek. It isn't open to the public anymore, for obvious reasons, but a 4*4 can still navigate the road, if you have the key to the gate Posted by Picasa

Necktie Basin, a weird natural basin at 4000 feet. There is a small spring and there used to be sheep here... now there is a dusty road. No one ever comes up here anymore, it's a lonely but amazing place. Posted by Picasa

Twin Peaks and a thunderstorm. From this angle, you can see only one of the two peaks. Posted by Picasa
