As we continued along, the road began to climb and red ridges dotted with sage and juniper rose along the left. The road was still loose gravel and had become washboard.
Since it was wide and fairly straight, I was able to keep up some reasonable speed to smooth out the rippled road.

Eventually we climbed higher and the junipers gave way to the alpine forest of spruce and pines. The road got smaller and twistier as we climbed. It was still washboard and caution replaced speed. A car bouncing on washboard in a turn doesn’t respond well and with steep drop-offs alongside the road, I needed a sure response.
