Bill Moore 4 Wheel Drive 08/26/2014
This was a 4 wheel drive from Empire to Bill Moore Lake near Mt.
Flora.  We went up 183.1 and found the road so bad we went back by
Red
Elephant Road.  It was worse.  It was a 14 mile roundtrip drive.
View of Empire from the highest
point of the drive.
Panoramic of the outlet from Bill Moore Lake.  (large)

The destination is just below the
snowfield.
