Capitol Peak

Almost everyone in this area has at least seen the towers on the peak. And many have gone up to explore the miles of roads up there. It's one of those places where it seems as though civilization is a million miles away. A place you wouldn't want to be stranded. Almost every time I've been there something happens to give a story whether I like it or not.. like the time my girlfriend and another friend went up in winter. We were in a old Dodge Dart I'd pay'd $200 bucks for. It was snowing on the way up. We were drinking beer, smokin' and laughing. The road became narrower and could only follow someones tracks. The higher we got the heavier it snowed and it became hard to see. Which was scary with little to no shoulder. We plowed snow with the front bumper, getting close to the towers. The tires were shot but we had extra weight. I knew there was no safe place to turn around. Up ahead we see a four wheel drive truck that had made the tracks. He was stuck. Then I became real nervous. The guy comes up to my window and asks How did you make it up this far? I laughed and said, "we just drove."
He says well there's no place to turn around so your gonna have to back down. I looked in the rear view and couldn't see a thing. So i stick my head out the window and proceed to back down slowly. By this time we were laughing out of nervousness. Hill on one side and cliff on the other. If you used the brakes it would slide. Eventually we came to a barely wide enough area to do a twelve point turn around; shaking like a leaf. To this day I wonder how I was able to do that. God watches out for children and fools.

Hi all, I hoped a few people would chime in with a story about a Peak experience.. I know I can't be the only one. It's a great ATV or dirt bike area as well as 4-wheelin'.
