Better see what Friday brings. Might be needing 4wd if there is a lot of mud.

We are hoping to head out to Saline this weekend. Have a 2016 Tacoma 2X4 in which I traveled to SV last year. Years before it was another Tacoma. 

Can anybody tell me what their thoughts are on the road conditions now? The road was relatively easy when last I did this trip last year but don't have much experience in mud. 

Based on the video posted by yubert, it looks like my truck could get past the boulder. Mud may be the issue for us.

Any thought would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry didn't take picture of rock.......I posted under 919lar previously. 6x6 must have made it out...... no sign of it. Boulder is up against mountain wall....it will need a BULLDOZER to move,not a scraper.....it's the biggest "thing" I've seen in 38 years going in and out south or north!

Well, yeah.  Especially since we already heard that an F350 with an 11' Lance Camper on it made it. [rolleyes]

Wish my zuke was operational. It laughs at this kind of road.

Does anyone have a picture of the boulder sitting near the road? If not could a Tacoma tow a Samurai around it? or would they have to unhook and
drive it around? Thanks.

6 wheel military truck ran out of gas going out south pass yesterday, Right before the boulder. I offered him a ride to get gas but luckily we ran into an inyo country truck that had diesel. Dunno if the truck made it around the boulder though.

White paint on bolder ; trail side denoting to sharp of a turn! OUCH!!!! White out at top at 11:00 and windy. Great Saline traveling weather!
