Call this Pucker Point!

There aren't a whole lot of places that give me the willies when I'm 4-wheeling, but this spot sure did! My Chevy Silverado p/u could only make it through this tight spot after I folded in the sideview mirrors. Scared the shiat out of me! In fact, it took me half an hour to get up the nerve to go through this section, only to have to turn around and do it again coming out. That dip in the road at its narrowest point doesn't help.



It creeped me out so much that a week later I took my two friends up there so they could experience it, too. One was my best friend from TN, and he wasn't happy that I wouldn't let him get out of the truck. He lived, so we're still friends!

Glad to hear I was not the only one who got scared here. I reached this spot in a rental Jeep, all alone, on an early morning when the surface of the road was still in the shade but the sun was shining in my eyes. Coming back (when I took this shot) was a lot easier.

Would hate to get to this point...

and have some one coming the other way. Roads like this often make me wonder, what were they thinking?
