Del Mar potholes: Large and deep

As I was weaving my bike between the Del Mar potholes recently I noticed they are not only large and deep but they have been there so long that vegetation has grown into many of them.

A Del Martian riddle occurred to me, what if a sacred Torrey Pine were to sprout in the pothole — would we need to build a road around it?

With apologies to Bob Marley, perhaps we should “pave ‘em before they grow.”
