Even though its summer, there's still snow lingering on the sides of some of these roads. I didn't photograph the snow although I probably should have. I was at a relative high point here, probably near a geographical feature called windy ridge. Disturbingly, there are condo developments in this area right on the border of the park. I'm assuming that they're vacation rentals, as it would be a long commute to basically anywhere from here.
I had a lot of fun at SOAK, but ti was a fairly stressful time, so I figured I'd take the slow, fun route home and take the road that I'd been wanting to for a while.
