An Amazing Brand New County Park Opened Near Pacifica, California

Twenty years ago, the voters of San Mateo County, California, just south of San Francisco, approved a local tax to pay for a fix to Highway 1 that was shut down by a landslide. The State of California had advanced a plan that would blast a road cut through the middle of San Mateo Mountain, destroying the local landmark. The people of the county were shocked and asked CalTrans, why not tunnel under the mountain. CalTrans replied it could not find money for that. The people of the county passed the local tax, funded the tunnels for CalTrans, saved the mountain, and turned the old section of Highway 1 into a foot and bicycle trail, which opened to the public one year ago, along with the new tunnels!

The Devil’s Slide is on a very unique parcel of California land that is epically steep and spectacular, but made of weak crumbling rock falling into the sea, a sliver of beach cliff property along the San Gregorio Fault, part of the San Andreas fault zone. The San Gregorio Fault cuts its way north and south down the steep coastline through the edge of the Pacific Plate, plunging in and out of the Pacific Ocean.

Of course what makes this coastline dangerous also makes it beautiful and spectacular. These crumbling cliffs host unique flowers and are the nesting ground for seacliff-loving birds and mammals. These beach cliffs continue downwards under the sea, only the very tops emerging from water, the depths from where the deep, cold California Current emerges from. The icy water, ancient and pristine, cools the air upon contact, dousing the coast often in fog. The mountainous cliffs jut into the sky over the Pacific, catching high winds, making convenient nesting stops for sea birds and a offering a unique ecosystem for California wildflowers.

This new county park neighbors the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, adding to public lands preserving the open space in one of the hottest economic regions of the world – which wouldn’t be such a desirable place to live if it weren’t kept so beautiful.

If you don’t watch Fox News, you don’t know the truth!

A: Hair on FIRE headline!! Hillary Clinton is a criminal and must be stopped!

Q: A criminal, really in fact, or is that just a glorified political accusation?

A: READ THE FOX NEWS HEADLINE! She confessed to her CRIMES — before CONGRESS! She said she did it! She said she deleted 30,000 emails!

Q: I heard her say that too. If what she did was illegal, sounds like a slam dunk. You’ve GOT HER!

A: No – it’s not a slam dunk. She has too much power!

Q: How’s that?

A: She has everyone in government in line, afraid to act against her since she could become the most powerful woman since Oprah if she gains the powers of President of the United States. I care for my country so much. I hate to see this happen. She must be stopped.

Q: I thought you people were brave. Any threat to national security, you’re there, acting even if the threat has not been fully been proven. You act preemptively! You wait for nothing. Especially proof. You act before doubts can gain traction. You are the country savers!

A: You forget Obama is in office! We have the enemy running the country! You can’t save the country with the enemy in office. We need a favorable government. We can act once Obama terms out and Hillary loses the election. But she might win and there will never be justice and our country will be even more vulnerable to falling to our enemies, like socialists, moochers, anchor babies, illegal aliens and terrorists.

Q: Don’t you have the entire Congress? I’m finding it hard to believe this is anything but BS, since it’s all out in the open as you say. Your enemy has faltered and yet they appear to be fine. Normally, something so obvious would change everything – like when Nixon was found out to have masterminded the Watergate break-in. Yet somehow, Hillary, a mere Presidential candidate, has you hiding in fear despite her being this imminent threat.

A: We have to be careful. She is a criminal, a sociopath. I know. I’ve had women bosses. They will stab you in the back. These aren’t the old days when if you saw a spade you could call it a spade. Hillary is evil. She will go to jail. You will see this happen. You doubt what I know about people and the things I see. I am certain as religion.

Q: So to save the country, all liberals need to lose their elections. They are unwittingly the enemies of freedom.

A: Bingo! Your belief system is influenced by common criminals, socialists, Iranians and other terrorists, and of course illegal aliens.

Q: Are you sure what you watch is real news?

A: Excuse me, FOX News is the number one news source in America.
