This one-minute video is a part of the Mount Charleston series I’ve been running for a couple days now. It’s about 14 miles from the junction near the ski resort, to the 95 freeway and a very long and slow descent. I tried coasting the distance last year in neutral but not this time! I’ll drop about 4000 feet.
Names such as Stinking Creek Road and Big Bone Lick State Park make traveling from Michigan to Florida kind of fun. Who came up with these names? These photos were taken a few years ago during one of my twice-yearly trips from Michigan to Florida, then drive the big rig back to Michigan in the spring. Fun!
The last time I did this was in 2020 before the virus came along. Well, I avoided the virus thus far but a nasty kidney stone was waiting to whoop my bum when I got down there. ouch, this is stone number two. Number one was during the 1990s. And the damn doctor told me that I’d likely not have another stone!
These photos are probably two years old as the Nikon photos are from the D3300 body. The others are iPhone photos. It’s 84F just now, we are heading up to 100F today, the summer heat is back!
These photos are from a 2015 road trip through Georgia and Florida with my dad, has it really been 6 years?
