Damn! I recognize that cut. It is right in the area I looked on Google Maps when you posted the original picture. Unfortunately, I confined myself to looking along the bigger highway. So, your picture is near the road I would take in order to head for your neck of the woods. And it is on the road I take to get to Mt. Whitney.

Oh man! That's the first place I looked for a match when the picture was first posted.



I sure didn't recognize the pattern, though.
Here's the Gmap4 view (click for full-screen), Beale's Cut at Newhall Pass.
It is a peculiar site on the topo maps that Gmap4 can display -- only the Google Maps terrain view shows the new CA-14 freeway. Also, there are four generations of highways here: The wagon trail, the Newhall Pass tunnel, Sierra Highway (old Hwy 14) and now CA-14, all within half a mile of each other.

Steve, I think that the problem was that you and I were tripping over each other in Google Maps.

It's perfectly OK to post cryptic answers.

Happy Anniversary to this thread.

Any creature that had the balls to live here mayhaps should be undisturbed, but Adam & Eve were forcibly removed and taken to Melbourne, Australia. They were found in a "tree", but it wasn't an apple tree.

Only in Australia would one find something like that. I was way off on the wrong track until I remembered that words in wagga clues are important. "Balls", for example, would not refer to cojones. It took some doing, but I kept at it and earned the lobster (-like) dinner.

Answer: What In The World Happened Here? CVI: (106)

I couldn't post this answer yesterday, for the obvious reason. Remember when peeps were all confused about the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus?

This is a TREE LOBSTER.



The whole story is here and here.

No, I think he was from San Francisco. He had been born, but was still Heisman-free, when the picture on the right was taken, but that is coincidence.

So this puzzle is in the sports arena, rather than the political arena? Somehow I think it's not cricket.

Gotta go with "sports" but sports can intersect with politics.

And it ain't cricket.

OK, we need a clue here. Since OJ's birth place came up, however spuriously, I offer the following: San Francisco got the Giants.
