Jurassic Park Muir Woods: Nedry’s Crash on the Way to the East Dock Re-Enacted on Muir Woods Drive

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Or, Only In Marin.

InGen featured prominently on this RAV4:

Seems an attempt was made to extricate, but it failed. This could be the denouement of an ill-fated three point turn. Note that other drivers took advantage of some prime parking space with a quickness:

Apparently, drivers rejected from the normal parking lots of Muir Woods National Monument fall off of the flat part of Muir Woods Road like every day. These occupants here just wanted to turn around, too bad.

Calling for a tow involves hiking to the main gate, one assumes, as cell phone service is spotty at best. (I’m thinking AT&T would have the best chance of attaining one bar, based upon what people I know have experienced.)

BTW, Nedry is nerdy backwards

It’s in the same vein as those Coyote Alert signs you see:

Oh here’s a coyote. The pup below was part of a mating pair in Golden Gate Park that caused problems a while back. You won’t see it around town because Fish and Game sent someone over to plumb blow it away.

Oh well.

As you’re walking in the Presidio along Chestnut Street West (or whatever they call it these days) through the Letterman Digital Arts Center, you can look up and see this view through the windows of a walkway connecting buildings.

[Oh, these models areĀ called maquettes, and the one in the middle is a spaceship of some type – see comments]

Can you ID the species? Sure you can…
