Pastora Peak

Set high in the Carizzo Mountains, within the Navajo Nation, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. Parts of the road are steep and rocky, other parts flat and very nice. Always check the weather forecast before you start your journey: adverse conditions are common. The road is passable by most stock high-clearance 4wd vehicles. If wet, the road is slick and messy.
