The second saddle is a junction and decision point. To the west resides Frenchman Mountain Northwest. Continuing south the road drops away into a valley of sorts and appears to climb straight up the Frenchman Mountain with more switchbacks near the top. It is a breathtaking view and more than a little intimidating.
Note: appearances can be deceiving and the view to Frenchman Mountain is a form of optical illusion regarding distance and height.
Skip to POI #9 if skipping Frenchman Mountain summit.
