Watch Nacimiento Rd. Crumble

Last week, I sat at the turn out on the west side of the tiny bridge while a caravan of 16 tractor trailer rigs crossed the bridge. I noted that all 16 of them had their entire weight on the bridge at one time. I have photos. This is what it is doing to the road itself. Believe it or not, these 13 are just SOME of the problem areas. Going to be a lot of work to fix this.


I am grouping them into batches of 4 for your convenience. They are rather boring, but must be shown and preserved so that when this road says “no more” I have documentation I have been talking about this for MONTHS. And making suggestions on how to lessen the impact, but people are getting impatient, businesses want to bring in their big bucks and to be semi-normal, and tourists are clamoring to come in, so this “life-line” is just a minor detail that apparently will be addressed eventually, but seeing how things get done around here, won’t be addressed until it is beyond critical.


These were all taken on Friday, July 14th, 2017. Note in particular in the two smaller ones above, the pavement is completely gone in spots.

  1. The sculptor must be buying Liquid Nails by the case!


  2. Nice, it reminds of Gil Bruvel’s artwork.


  3. Gil’s artwork is MUCH more refined …..but possibly this piece was inspired by Gil.


  4. Looks like Burningman art to me … 🙂


  5. I met him once… eerie…


  6. Okay, I screwed up and wrote the new post re the road on top of the old post re the artwork, and so the above comments don’t seem to make sense. I can’t figure out how to correct that – the one is gone, and this one is here. Sorry


  7. Love all your updates. Thank you for the update on Naciamento rd. I am supposed to be up there 9-13 to Kirk Creek but based on your information I don’t know if its a good idea. Prayers to everyone up in Big Sur.


  8. A lot can change in two months, Tom. Stay tuned.
