This monument is located on the south side of California Street just east of - 14th Avenue.  It is the only Lincoln Highway marking besides the terminus - monument that we could find in San Francisco.  This monument marked the - highway's route when it headed for the Hyde Street Ferry to the East Bay, - which no longer exists.  This monument is likely an original 1928 one rather - than a replica because it is not in front of a chamber of commerce, a - government building, a park, or a museum.  It sits neglected in an - obscure location next to a run of the mill bus stop. Ninety-nine percent - of the people who see it every day probably have no idea what it is. About to cross the Bay Bridge.  No Hyde Street Ferry nowadays. A tree in beautiful full bloom that we saw in the East Bay.
East of Livermore we take the old road over Altamont Pass. - We now feel like we are really on the Lincoln Highway! Many different versions of this sign are used to mark the Lincoln Highway. - In some states they are plentiful; in other states they are few and far between. A rail line, as well as I-580, share the pass with us, - and occasionally they can be seen.
Altamont Pass is very windy, and its many windmills - comprise one of the world's largest wind farms. The Lincoln Highway leaves the Altamont Pass area and - drops to the valley floor. It soon enters the town of Tracy. The Lincoln Highway ran north-south along what is now California Route 99. Leaving the Sacramento area and heading east, we are again on a two-lane road.
