Highway 17 North in California

The summit is here (Patchen Pass) and here is the site of a landslide cleared away.

This is past the summit.
Note the burned out hillsides in the distance. Those hills burned in July 1985.

This was taken during Labor Day weekend in 1987. I used a zoom lens to show how things were growing back here.

I can't believe I had my camera not only in my hands but also it was on when I saw this!
Note the mountain bike rider on the shoulder, on 10/15/2008. Bike riding on most California freeways is illegal, and this part of 17 is a dicey ride even in a car sometimes.
