  1. That really is too awful for words, I’m so sorry for all of them, most expecially the woman who lost her life. The rest of their time alive will be hard enough on the living. Tragic. I half wonder if Highway 1 doesn’t need signs like: ALERT!! You are in an unearthly experience here. It is rarified air. Possibly you may feel light-headed or disoriented. Please pay careful attention on roadways and near edges, making sure you are safe before feasting.
