Proposed 130 East in California
Proposed 130 through Stanislaus County normally gets seven inches of
rain a year.
A few months earlier when I did this trip seven inches of rain fell in one day
and washed out much of the road.
Note the peculiar landscape, much like what you see on 88 near the
Nevada state line.
The curves are mainly 22 MPH through here.
I saw almost no one between the county line and the start of the park.
This is lower elevation than the last photo.
This must be an old mine.
The road is dropping here and there are a lot of curves out here at 22 MPH. This part might be visible from Mt. Hamilton.
This is Frank Raines Regional Park
and it gets extremely hot here in the summer. It is about 16.5 miles from the park to I5.
This area reminds me of Big Bend National Park in Texas. There is a
stone fence next to the highway.
