The Winding Road
When we were coming back down from the mountains to head back to Visalia, we decided to take an "alternate route" down the mountain. I think it was CA 245. About a quarter mile down the road, we saw one of those yellow caution signs with the double s-curve marked on it, and in bold print below, read "Next 31 Miles." We decided to go for it.
By the time we made it down to the valley, we were all a bit carsick and rattled from the extreme descent in 2nd gear all the way down from 7000 feet back to the 300 feet-above-sea-level of the valley. It was a lot of fun, though, and we saw some of the most breathtaking scenery I've ever looked at. And I think the brakes on the rental van are still good.
