    Need Help to Find Specific Aguereberry Point Location

    Last February I drove to Aguereberry Point to what I thought was the end of the road, parked and enjoyed the wonderful view of the Valley below along with a toast of Glenmorangie (this year it may be Talisker, Ardbeg or Lagavulin). What I was looking for though, was a specific view that includes some jaggedy rocks (partially shown in photo below). I didn't notice it in walking around but wonder if I should have continued in the car to the left and up? But, it looked somewhat precipitous! Can some kind forum denizen tell me where exactly to go? Thank you and see you there (approx. Feb. 20)!

    When I was 16 I thought my father the stupidest man in the world; when I reached 21, I was astounded by how much he had learned in just 5 years!

    I don't believe you will find this view w/o a walk. If my memory is correct, you need to park on the last loop of the road and walk in a generally southerly direction and down the mountain a short way. This is not an easy hike.

    There are some sharp rocks that you have to walk along/through, heading toward the valley. They start more or less at the edge of the parking lot where the sign is.

    I'm now wondering if I didn't drive far enough as I stopped at the first flat spot with a view of the Valley but the road seemed to continue to the left and up and I didn't notice the sign either!

    Well as you come up to the edge, there is a place to pull out. And I believe there is a green Sanican there. The road continues up to the left, but not for very far. It curles around and brings you to a wide open area that isn't quite the very top, but is in front of it. There is a big sign with some history at the edge of the parking lot. The rocks I was mentioning are behind it and continue toward the Valley.

    Don't know how helpful this is ... but if you go to Google Maps ... search for Aguereberry Point ... roll your cursor over the MAP symbol in the upper right and then click on PHOTO when it appears on the pop out menu, you will be able to access photos taken from specific locations.

    Once the PHOTOS option is enabled, if you zoom all the way into Aguereberry Point, you'll see two photos that appear to show the shot you're interested in. They are in two relatively close positions to the NE of the end of the road turnaround that is described above.

    Drive to the end of the road to where it is *no longer possible* to drive further. Get out of your car and look around. Hey, there it is!

    It's that easy.
