There was almost another road crossing the sierra in the middle. The road to Huntington and beyond to Florence Lake is CA 168. Look on the other side of the mountains and you will see that the road to Sabrina is also CA 168. Plans were afoot at one time to connect them - fortunately it never happened.

Of course, all these features (also power lines, etc.) are marked on regular topo maps. For example:

As a guide to help finding them one can use a schematic map at

For those of you interested in the topos, I should be getting maps from Southern California Edison any day now and I'll pass them on if you'd like.

i would love to see the maps, and when your project is done, get a copy of it, or a pointer to it.
