It begins with a long but green Spring drive to Carmel-by-the-Sea to install a sculpture. Returning north I stop at the Fort Ord Dunes State Park. Once a military training area, including several firing ranges, it’s now a great vantage point to contemplate how expansive the Monterey Bay really is. And to remember that this was once a firing range!
The drive back continues along Highway 101, the King’s Highway, El Camino Real. North of Monterey is the old mission, San Juan Bautista. Just outside of the town, right along the highway is this remnant of an old original adobe wall and marker, just there, as if it’s any bit of normal roadside wall.
And from there the journey through time concluded with a stop at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. And how perfectly fitting to stand in the warmth of the sculpture garden and take in the refrigerated Snowman by the art duo, Fischli and Weiss.
