Old U.S. Route 40 through Crockett, California
Until the late 1950's - when the Interstate Highway System came to be - this is the four-lane blacktop that ran from the San Francisco Bay Bridge to Sacramento. Here we are one kilometer (0.6 mi.) west of Crockett (to our left). This hillside was paved decades ago to stabilize the high power transmission lines above. A curious sight.
