Making Way for the Pacific Coast Highway

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 15 November 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Mugu Rock (now seen on the right) was formed when a path for the Pacific Coast Highway was cut through the mountain. Here to the left of the highway you can see where the slice was made into the mountains.
