I can imagine him thinking, Humm, dang, I'm in a tight spot.

It scares the bejeebers out of me, just thinking about this!

I've traversed this road a few times -- most recently, about 4 months ago, in a Jeep Liberty -- and it is always a white-knuckle experience for me. Besides the tight curves and steep 100+ foot drop-offs, there are stretches of this road that are basically 1 1/2 lanes wide, which can make for some pretty tense encounters with oncoming passenger vehicles; I can't even bring myself to think about what it would be like to come nose-to-nose with an oncoming semi-truck on one of those narrow stretches with a 100 foot drop-off to my right.

I know this road too, and it is a story like this that makes me avoid having deliveries made to our place in the mountains. You just never know how long the delivery vehicle might be and what a disaster could result from a long truck on the wrong terrain.

I'm not sure what this driver was paying attention to but the great big sign at the mouth of Butterfield Canyon is a dead giveaway about where the wild horse place is.
