stuck truck on Mt. Cameron

Post by geologistnick » Mon Sep 07, 2009 11:26 am

This really new pick-up truck is at ~13,900 on trail traversing below Mt. Cameron, between Mts. Lincoln and Bross, with Lincoln in the background. It is buried up to the axles. Photo on Sunday, Sept. 6. Not sure when the tow truck will arrive.

So much more I could say, but I'll leave it at +1.

Nothing so stuck as a stuck 4WD. A shovel and a lot of work would get it back on the road.

Lucky he is just stuck. I saw a couple idiots on ATV's back in 2005 trying to go across that saddle from Bross to Cameron. They were contouring the side of Cameron following the hikers trail and next thing I knew is the one guy rolled his ATV and it tumbled all the way down the Lincoln amplitheater. Pretty impressive to see how many flips an ATV can do tumbling down a steep hill.
