End of the Road.......

Before I drove into Crescent City this Labor Day weekend, I decided to try to get to the end of one of the side tracks of the South Fork Smith River Road (Del Norte County, California). This part of the road is paved, but always has small rock slides covering the pavement . I have tried to make it to the end of this road several times and have been stomped. This is the furthest I got during my last attempt.

After I turned around this time, I stopped at the site where two boulders partially blocked the road. A sign of what to come. Not a great thought if this road gets blocked by a rock slide - there is really no other way out - maybe some serious 4x4 tracks.

Detour!!

Going up on this road smoke was very visible from the surrounding fires and creeps into the mountain sides.
