Proposed 130 through Stanislaus County normally gets seven inches of
rain a year.
A few months earlier when I did this trip seven inches of rain fell in one day and washed out much of the road.
Note the peculiar landscape, much like what you see on 88 near the Nevada state line.
This is lower elevation than the last photo.
This is Frank Raines Regional Park
and it gets extremely hot here in the summer.
This area almost reminds me of Big Bend National Park in Texas.
