Journey Through an East Bay Backroad – Top of Mt. Hamilton


Great California drive in the Spring, not in the Summer!

With the sky the brightest blue, fields popping out all over in electric greens, and the invigorating Spring charge to the air, the time is to get outside now. But Spring is never the time to go anywhere fast: This is the season of the journey, not the destination.

Carmel is a very popular northern California destination year-round. Whether for golfing, shopping, sightseeing or simply hanging out, the area is a magnet for weekend travelers. Few folks explore the back roads in the vicinity, however, as most prefer to congregate on Highway 1. In this installment of Porsche Roads, I want to tell you about a very picturesque and less traveled alternative.
