Today was forecast to be sunny; so I took the car down Hwy 101 to Hwy 198 (about 55 miles south of Salinas), east about 15 miles to Hwy 25, and north on 25 to Hollister. The hill shots are from along Hwy 25. The lettuce guy was on Hwy 68 just west of Salinas. 200 miles & 25 mpg.

The southern-most 8 to 10 miles of Hwy 25 are in a very large and wide valley (possibly where your pix were taken). That valley looks to me like it once held a very large river like those you see in Oregon flowing to the coast. Now you can see a small creek (San Lorenzo Creek) runs through the middle. That makes me wonder about the geologic history of the valley. It looks like not too long ago (on geological time scales) the watershed there developed a LOT more water than now.

I got restless again, and it was sunny. About Noon, I decided to go for a spin, and ended up going north on one of my favorite treks. Hwy 1 from Santa Cruz to Pescadero, east on Pescadero Creek Rd, east on Alpine, south on Skyline, southwest on Hwy 9 to Boulder Creek & Santa Cruz. I've decided my favorite driving road up in that area actually isn't Skyline; it's Hwy 9 btwn Skyline and Boulder Creek. Very nice pavement, most of it is thru a redwood forest, lots of (posted) 30 mph bends.

For the first time, I found parking spots on the main street in Pescadero; so I took a couple shots. 5 hours, 190 miles, and 25mpg again.

This is exactly what I am looking forward to being able to do in a few months. For now, I am driving my Cayman vicariously. Thanks for your posts.
