This view is looking towards the northwest at about mile 2.3. The grade up until milepost 2.0 is on the south side of the road on fenced property. It is possible to make it out in some spots as you travel east on the road but this is were we start traveling on top of the grade. A 600' pile trestle was located in the area of the barricades in this shot. It looks like flooding is a problem in this location today. A Cemex cement facility is directly behind me on the west side of the road.

This view is looking towards the northeast at the normally dry stream bed, Granite Creek, that was crossed by the long pile trestle.
