I always try to go at least once a summer. Wish I were younger!
Wow, that's disheartening to hear. So glad you reacted quickly enough. You didn't say if you were running or biking, but regardless of which I will admit that there are a lot of blind curves and rises on the road. And yes, the remoteness and quietness usually affords you a hearing advantage for vehicular traffic. So far my experience is that everyone has given me a wide berth. Of course I always run towards oncoming traffic, too.
