Every year we take a drive over Sonora Pass and then northon 395 and back over Ebbits Pass. Then we go back to sonora Pass. Both passes in a day's drive make for quite a view of California. Amazing day!

Riding over this beautiful pass in August is a thrilling experience and I am sure it would be wonderful in any type of vehicle. There was still snow on the higher peaks and the weather was absolutely perfect. Take a picnic and plan to eat lunch in one of the spectacular meadows.

This was a beautiful road for most of the trip. The last couple of miles were a bit blah. The were quite a few narrow twists and turns that made me wish I was't in the passenger seat and closer to the edge. If you don't have a fear of heights and want to take a slow drive through some really pretty country this by-pass is the place to do it.

Yes you should drive this road but slowly, if you are suicidal tow a trailer. Pretty but hard to pull off to see vistas, road is windy with some grades of 26%.

Lots of beautiful scenery on this winding road. Don't try to take this drive too fast. You would miss too much if you don't take it slow.
