From Brendon Shave at the Hermitage:

And that is how the afternoon of Saturday, August 22 looked on the south coast. When we left to go to Cambria, we passed many, many cars heading UP the coast, but coming back, we were one of the few going north. Very few cars stopped on the side of the road after getting into the closed area at Ragged Point. There was no one lined up at any of the road blocks we drove around. Limekiln, Kirk Creek, Plaskett Creek all closed. The north coast, I am hearing is a different story and that Sycamore Canyon and Pfeiffer Beach were a nightmare for residents. Our dirt roads are still a mess, but fortunately, not being made more so.
