Carmel Hill, 1959

Looking south on the Highway One construction in 1959 over Carmel Hill from the present day Soledad Drive and Munras Road area. During the highway construction residents of the Monterey Peninsula were outraged over the excessive tree removal to make way for the roadway. It was estimated that twice as many trees were removed than the original plans had called for. (Monterey County Herald Archives)
