This^^^^

That area is even more un-stable than Salsipuedes



I got $1.00 that says the new road section stays in place over the winter. Any takers saying opposite?

Parts north and south of the new section, well, that is a different bet.

Yeah I agree.

So I'll take Doofs bet for a dollar, although I don't know how I'd pay you, paypal maybe.
If we have a strong winter it wont last. Hopefully they start spraying the hillside with that green hydroseeding stuff, that might help.

look at all the sediment being washed south by the current....

Mellow winter, it holds. Heavy winter, it's gone.

Looks like the entire hillside is decomposed granite. Not sure how the seeding will go.

While I agree with the sentiment of ' mellow it hold, harsh it goes', that is the uncertainly Caelho face with our mighty $1 bet.

Winter is November till end of March?

If there is an earthquake during the time period and it goes, I'll pay the $1.00 too.

Agree?

Big Sur was one of my favourite parts of the road trip I did along the California coast in June. It's just so beautiful and largely untouched; incredible colours, views for miles, so much beauty. We only got a little way down it, and had to double back. Gonna come back to explore and try to do the stretch.


The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.
