Damn.. I am going to have to get up there one of these days, it looks awesome. Hemlock always gets put on the back burner for some reason, in my group.
Now if only my truck didn't suck so much, so I could get there, I have heard that road gets a bit brutal in the winter.
We drive a subie impreza and have no probs. Road is gravel but is plowed and gritted. We hit the bottom at about 8.20 and drove part way up behind grit truck. Have seen some shit go down, but it was 2wd cars, no chains etc...
