    Brown-KB-El P is in its usual late summer form. Loose over hard, ruts filled with chunky gravel. Brush not an issue up top, and El P got a two-year haircut from Universal Cycles crew and others(?).

    Out there again. Strawberry is in great shape but it's getting overgrown through the Potrero.

    A new species of gerbil had made the slide it's home. I think @DangerDirtyD is performing a sustainability study on it, which will wrap up next month......

    The whole metamorphic mess is undermined by poorly consolidated meta-sediments over laid by hardier meta-igneous rock. The meta-seds failed first and leave the meta-igneous hanging above the road bed. Slope stabilization and netting are being installed.
    There are several other slide areas along the 2 being worked on almost daily. Be careful driving up there.
