Cerro Gordo Drive

After exploring the Salt Tram enough to know we’d need to come back yet again, we hiked back up to the summit and retraced our steps back to Cerro Gordo. From Cerro Gordo, we drove down the north slope of the Inyo’s into Saline Valley proper. From here, we made our way to the White Mountain talc mine. Like Cerro Gordo road, the road up to White Mountain was pretty steep (deceptively so in this photo) and shifting into low range made a lot of sense.
