That’s Half Moon Bay in the distance–with the San Mateo-Half Moon Bay Road leading to the town. Note: there doesn’t seem to be anything on either side of the road–which means it must have been taken prior to the 1940s.
This is my favorite pix of old way to Half Moon Bay…
Photo: That’s me, standing beside the jeep…on the old, very bumpy Pedro Mtn Rd, circa 1970s…Guess you can’t see me…but I was there….
And here’s Pedro Mtn Road when it was much newer…1915?
Half Bay Memories & the El Granada Observer has commissioned an unofficial survey of the number of big commercial trucks and big rigs traveling to and fro on Highway 92.
And the numbers from this unofficial âeye countâ? are in.
âApproximately every sixth vehicle,â? according to the ‘eye count’ survey, âis either a large commercial vehicle or big rig sandwiched in between commuter and passenger cars and smaller working trucks traveling to and from the Coastside during daylight hours on the weekdays.â?
Well, there you have it. Every sixth vehicle is a large truck or big rig.
Are they all going to Devilâs Slide, to help fix the broken road?
Are they going to the dump?
Where are they going?
Should they be on the road during daylight hours while Devilâs Slide is closed, making life miserable for commuters and almost impossible for those who would come to shop and visit the Coastside?
