The hairpin from GoogleMaps:

The view as you are driving this!  I WANT that Google camera for Jolly!  LOL

The section of  120 from 49 east to Groveland was even more "exciting" than the Bagby turns:

Thanks Carol, I've always enjoyed your maps. Goodness, it seems so long ago when you were telling me about The Trace, time flies and sometimes stands still. Enjoy the rest of your trip.
