The Narrows Along Cerro Gordo Grade, Inyo Mountains, California

"The Narrows" along Cerro Gordo Grade--here, Cerro Gordo Road slices through an unnamed Middle Triassic terrestrial formation conisting of volcanic tuffs and breccias; four-wheel-drive is mighty handy to help negotiate the steep ascent and variable quality of the dirt trail; seen here a 1959 Willys jeep--complete with winch, gas carrier, water carrier, tow bar, and even a rack.
