Despite the heat, the tour still went on today. Only one person showed, hopefully more will show next time (and with better temperatures). We explored the Cajon Pass area from Devore to the Summit, finding a few new things along the way. After the tour, we headed toward Grand Terrace to check out a bit of old US 91 / 395 / State 18 at the Santa Ana River. I will post more in the next day or so, though here are a few of the photos taken today.
On August 12, 2017, I will be hosting this websites first highway tour in the Cajon Pass area. This tour will cover the roadway from Verdemont to Cajon Summit. Some portions will have to be skipped, unfortunately, due to fire-related closures. The start of the tour has changed from the initial announcement. It will now begin at Devore, in front of Tony’s Diner at 18291 Cajon Blvd, San Bernardino, CA 92407 at 8 am. Please do not park in their parking lot. There is plenty of on-street and off-street parking in the area.
After a brief introduction, we plan to leave at about 8:30 am. The tour will stop at the following locations:
- Verdemont (backtrack)
- Cajon Blvd (at the freeway)
- Kenwood Ave
- Blue Cut
- Debris Cone Creek
- Cajon Junction
- Cajon Summit
Additional stops may be added if needed. I strongly recommend bringing water and snacks as there are few water/food stops along the route. Please RSVP if you plan to attend this tour. Again, we will be leaving the starting point no later than 8:30 am. Please RSVP no later than August 11 so that I can get a rough number of how many will attend. I look forward to seeing you out there!
