We climbed over one pass on the normal Tarmac road, then turned onto TLDR. He was right, it was easy at the start. What he meant by interesting is that after the Sawpit turnoff you climbed up another 2500'+. On a rather rocky, steep, dirt road.
And that was interesting.
Some short-lived storms blew through, enought for Sarah to bunker down beside a fallen tree for shelter. It may not look like it, but it was actually quite cozy.
However, the views were more than ample compensation. (I would ride The Last Dollar Road again without hesitation).
Tom Cruise has one of his houses there, and he can afford to choose well...... We knocked, but he wasn't in.
Usually it is a mistake to go back like this. This time it was not, and some nights of luxury were enjoyed by us both (A late birthday event for Sarah).
