Location #8

More of the old 15 ft. wide pre-1930 highway on both sides of Thompson Rd. at a point near the top of a hill about 500 yards north or Poague Rd.. It crosses over Thompson road here and then heads straight north into the town of Nipomo.

View looking south. I know this stuff starts to look all the same after a while, but I try to be thorough.

This is now on the east side of Thompson Rd. Some recent grading has exposed this piece.
