Ground-Up strikes a pose near Little Sluice. The vistas along the Rubicon are amazing. You have to have a capable vehicle or be ready to hike for a few days to see this view. We spent the second night of the trip at Buck Island Lake. The lake is a beautiful place to camp and it’s nice to take a swim and wash the dust off even after a short day’s wheeling. We did experience a massive downpour at Buck Island Lake. Be prepared for any kind of weather event and avoid camping in a creek bed.
