Carbon River Road/Summit Lake

Went for a hike at Summit Lake; WTA listed this hike as a good choice this weekend. The way up to the trailhead can be rutted and wash-boarded, so plan to lower the tire pressure on your vehicle, any vehicle. Bring that cheap air compressor. Decreasing pressure on dirt roads will increase the square inch footprint of each tire, thereby increasing the grip. It makes the ride so much more smoother. I misplaced my Staun tire pressure deflators so I used my Viair pressure gauge instead to lower the pressure. Worked amazingly well. Nice thing about it is that I can precisely deflate to a specific PSI with this tool, rather than merely deflating and checking as I would usually do with the Staun deflators. I do believe that going forward, I’ll just use this Viair pressure gauge that came with the 450P.

Anyways, to the pictures.
