Once again, my start/stop points didn’t include any towns, so they can only be defined by Monterey County mileposts. Interestingly, today seemed like it was going to be one of the more ‘remote’ days, but in reality there were quite a few houses. Actually, I doubt we ever went more than a half mile without seeing a house. They were all tucked away and you would never know they were there. The only hints were the mailboxes. Even so, you’d still never see them when driving by in a car – but they were fairly obvious as we took the ‘slow road’.
One of the marked Vista Points was closed, and full of construction vehicles – and a helicopter. They were replacing telephone poles up on the ridge, and Shena (who drove us to our start point) said they hang the workers off a tether from the helicopter. We did see them land once, and it most definitely looked like they had a couple of guys ‘hanging out’!
My favorite photo of the day:
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever…. ~ Psalm 138:8
