History of the highway

2018 8 Old SR 7 600 8 high
Old SR 7

SR 7 runs across the middle of the bluff; Old SR 7 is near the bottom. It provides a good study — what happens to a road when it’s not maintained? Potholes fixed, yes, but the edge gradually wears away, invaded by grass. The levelness disappears, as the rock underneath moves away, sliding downhill by gravity. Eventually it becomes as exciting as a roller coaster to drive on (this photo is the good part). And a good deal more scary.
