Yosemite Scenery Travelling from Ridgecrest to Placerville, CA – Ultimate Adventure 2016

Part 2 of Ultimate Adventure 2016. Participating in Ultimate Adventure definitely is not for the faint of heart. While UA always promises epic adventure, it can also test the limits of both man and machinery. No sleep, soaking rain, freezing mountain passes, and in this case, oven-like heat, are all part and parcel to the UA experience. And this year was no exception. On Day 2, Editor-in-Chief and UA leader, Christian Hazel, hammered that point home as he led the group from Ridgecrest, California, up to the night’s campsite in June Lake, California. But instead of a leisurely 200-mile jaunt up Highway 395 with plentiful fuel and ice cream stops, he drove the UA through the scorching valleys and passes of Death Valley…in the summer…on what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year. And while we didn’t lose any men, we did kill a few machines. We also visited a ghost town, got to make some trail repairs, towed out some broken rigs, drank lots of water, removed some hoods to try to get engines to run cooler, and ran out of fuel. Then, on Day 3, we left the furnace in the rear view and pointed the rigs skyward, enjoying the incredible drive and picturesque views over the Sierra Nevadas through Yosemite National Park.
