Pine Mountain Road finally reopened two days ago. A nice new ribbon of asphalt weaves upward where car eating sink holes and tooth rattling washboard once reigned. Of course the flip side of paving a road is the increased traffic it will soon see. Getting the Prius up the mountain is now not only possible but easily accomplished. No new camp sites, facilities or other amenities have been added and the camping situation there still seems pretty lezes faire as long as you post the Adventure Pass on your vehicle.
So boulderers rejoice, better late than winter for the reopening of our local high country. Somebody needs to bring a new spiral pad up to the Reyes register FWI.
Enjoy some pics from 09/01/13. I went with the Ansel Adams hi-contrast B&W today.
