CR752 - CR501 Brown's Hill s(u)
Three roads meet at this point in Wyoming rangeland
isolation. Two of them belong to the historic Savery Stock
Driveway. On my ride this is really just an almost
imperceptible summit point on the Mc Carty Canyon Road.
But in this area I got the best pictures on a day long
loop ride. So it gets a separate page.
From North. After descending from the FR401
Sage Creek Rd summit and going over another high point Mc
Carty Carty Canyon reaches a low point at the the desolate Mc
Carty Ranch. From here the road starts climbing again almost
imperceptively in this strange landscape of slightly curving
plains and surfaces that meet at shallow angles, so that
you're not sure what is up and whait is down.
But up ahead is a very recognizable line of mountains. The
most recognizable is the solid trapezoid shape of Battle
Mountain, after which Battle
Lake Pass is named. Behind it are more rectangular mesas
as well as perfectly rounded mountains grouped around Hahn's
Peak in Colorado. This road only bends now and then and meets
a summit point at the junction with CR752 Stock Drive Rd (also
called the Savery Stock Driveway). Brown's Hill refers to the
area north of there.
From South. Stock Drive Road
heads for a higher, more easterly point on the Battle Lake
Pass Road. But it was deeply rutted and muddy when I passed
through here. Instead the profile descends in a straight line
to Savery, and that is the place where I also got the best
late afternoon light on the mountains to the north.
But the road is only straight on a map, or when viewed from
above. In profile it is a series of bends. I want to call them
rolling hills, but actually they seemed steeper, than just
rolling. The road descends straight into Savery, passing the
pioneer museum, and the center of town, with its sign saying:
