I’m curious about the reference to Polar Star in your headline, Kate. I know Polar Star well, but am surprised that it’s used as a geographical reference for roadwork on the highway. Of course, I’m thinking of the mine and you’re maybe thinking of the school? Still, I’m surprised that as a name it would be a ready-at-hand reference point most folks. File this under my own love and curiosity about Big Sur place-names:)
Chris- I am curious about the Polar Star reference to the work at San Carpoforo. I’ve never heard of that term in reference to Big Sur. Please enlighten me….
