SD9 wrote:I will be making SOUR this year, I am a geology buff and I roam around that area often. My base of operation is usually Hunter Hot Springs in Lakeview. As for street tires on the gravel, I drove from the town of Plush which has a general store and gas to French Glen in an Audi TT. No ground clearance and highway tires and I experienced no problems. A suggestion for a ride I would like would be Pasley to Plush via gravel roads, up the hill to Antelope Hot Springs for a mid day soak and on to the Virgin Valley area just over the Nevada border. There is a gorge there that is just unbelievable and a really nice maar crater like hole in the ground. There is a hot spring at Virgin Valley plus we would have a very high likelihood of experiencing a small earthquake or two as they are having a swarm of them in this area. Adel has gas and Feilds Station does as well along with world famous milk shakes. Airplanes land on the highway at Fields Station and fuel up at the general store. I'm looking forward to experiencing Summer Lake hot springs because they have hot water as opposed to say the Virgin Valley which is in the 90s. Antelope Hot Springs has two pools (holes in the ground) one not so hot and the other about 105. So lots to do for sure. I have seen the Christmas Valley sights before and I agree that would be a good ride as well.
SD9 wrote:Hi Chuck, thanks it will be fun I'm sure. As for the sunstone mines route I'm unsure myself. I've driven gravel roads from Plush to French Glen but not Via Paisley. I think you have to go down to the jct. at the bottom of Lake Abert via the highway and then go A few miles North and cut across to Plush. At least that's what I'm kinda seeing on Google Earth.
