My trusty VW held together and made it to the summit road just fine. The road onto Aquarius was quite washboarded for a few miles in '03. I arrived at the summit just as the sun was about to set. Truly a memorable experience, with utter silence and solitude.
Andrew and SP member Dennis both accompanied me on this stroll to the top of the Knoll. The hard part was getting to this way out of the way place. A long way from anywhere but the Aquarius Plateau is a magical place.
