The area i was in is still untouched by progress but logging is allowed. The only paved road and with really nice potholes goes between the pumping station they use to pump water from one resoviour to another. There is no everything, phone, cell, improved roads,Thanks for the memories I grew up in southern CA and the family would go camping in the sierra nevada mountains back in the 60's and 70's. Back then you it was untouched from progress.
Road pix in the vally floor at just under 7,000 feet. To get to the valley you go up an old mule pack trail turned into jeep trail. Don't have any pix getting to the valley cause you have to give the trail your undivided attention or you break things.
