Went to Palomar today and 1/2 way up there are Caltrans trucks coming down. A little further up there is dirt and sand all over the road and worse on the down side. In their effort to improve??? our roadways, they graded the shoulders and left a mess. *ssholes. The backside was OK though and at least it wasn't a total wasted day. Think I'll do the De Luz Canyon, Santa Rosa Plateau trip Sunday the 15th. Has any one been there. There is one road Los Gatos that is a 24% grade, someone told me there is another even steeper by it.
