Other people leaving
during the down pour we had two couples, one in a nice jeep and one in a grand vitara, stuck at our camp site. after words we knew they would not be able to go back up Shefer switch backs due to the mud and below us the river had turned into a 2' deep river. We waited hours and it went down to about 1' deep. I headed out in front of them on foot to make sure there were no hidden holes. they made it out. the next morning we had the same route in front of us. it went well and the nastiest part was as shown in this picture. after that it opened up and the road got off the river bed.
