156 West in Monterey County

This set is taken west of US101 on 1/21/2011, from Prunedale to Castroville. This is an official scenic route. All of 156 is a scenic route, though the scenic route signs on the section multiplexed with US101 aren't up, likely because of the high accident rate in that area. This is the second set of highway photos I have posted online of this section. 

This is just past US101.

This is from January 1, 1989.
This is looking at Mt. Toro, which is sporting an unusual snow pack. These mountains occasionally receive snow, but it is a rarity. I'm leaving this photo up because it usually does not look like this.

This is two miles past US101 and it is before Oak Hills Drive. This area is populated also. The beaches did not show up from here on this trip.
