Rain Rocks Netting Project Photos

On Thursday, February 16, 2012, Cal-Trans flew in a helicopter to assist in laying out the metal “drapery” or netting used in more and more locations along Highway One to keep rocks from “raining” down on the highway. This particular location is notorious for that problem. Thanks to reader Nicole LaRoche, you, too can see this endeavor. On behalf of all my readers, thanks! (BTW you made my life so easy by just sending your best two!)

Sorry I have been absent much of February, so far. As many of you are aware, I have been wrestling with a grunge that is going around, and doing much of anything, other than sleep, was a challenge there for a while.

  1. If that guy Christo is still around maybe he could add an artistic flourish. At least match that cool purple rebar!

  2. Mike, you are so right! But having been married to one of the climbers, I know they did it for the fun, as much as the money!

  3. Wrapping a mountain? What will the human brain come up with next? I have learned so many new things by reading about what goes on in Big Sur, Kate. Thank you.
