Dangerous road

Dangerous road!
We have not mentioned before, but the road to the top of San Joaquin could be very dangerous! This is a very short and very steep stretch of road. It goes from the center of town to the top of the valley. If MsTioga would not be able to make it to the top of this very steep hill, backing down could prove hazardous.

There is another way to get to the top. A very windy road goes up there and this road has extremely tight switch backs.

We will decide which way to go when we get to San Joaquin.

12 Noon - Tioga up the steep road!
We decided to go up the steep road! After all, MsTioga's engine is the most powerful in the entire World!

With pedal to the metal, the pistons of her mighty engine pounding with unyielding power, Tioga moved The Team up the steep hill. Near the top, Tioga slowed a bit. And then with a great burst of energy, flew over the crest. We are soooooo proud of MsTioga!
