Nice job guys, that is a cool area. I hear ya about the road! Went up there in the summer years ago. I think we ate at the same place you did, cool cafe. It had some sign on the door with how many curves are in the road, like 600+ or something. I also remember seeing a huge tarantula in the middle of that road, we stopped right in the middle of the road and got out to take pictures. Oh and apparently it is true about the marmots eating through your car hoses. When we parked up at Mineral King, there were all these cars with chicken wire around their bases and we couldn't figure out what that was about. Luckily we didn't lose any hoses.
