Evolution or Intelligent Design? Some
believe that this DH evolved over the generations from old
logging or gold trails, the naturally selected route through the
Diablo Mtns. They point to the untamed Character and Stone Age
Engineering of the northern half this route, most evident in the
primitive 8.5 miles (13.7 km) of precarious one-lane road that
climbs off the wide, smoothly paved flat south of Livermore and
adapts to the sharp, wavering lip of the deep trough of Arroyo
Mocho. They say that this, along with the pleistocene Remoteness
and dry, rugged, unblemished Scenery, is a glimpse of a DH in
transition. Others dismiss these claims, arguing all you need to
do is look at Del Puerto Canyon Rd, particularly the divinely
paved and engineered canyon section that esses east of Frank
Raines Regional Park, to see that this route is the obvious
creation of some higher power. But whether you prefer your fish
insignia with or without feet, there’s one thing we should all
remember: the importance of respecting and preserving this and
all Destination Highways – and even Twisted Edges, for that
matter – regardless of their origin. And isn’t that really what
we want our kids to learn at school?
