Driving Old Highway 80 between Manzanita and Jacumba in southern San Diego county I was startled to see these strange life-sized figures dressed mostly in sweatshirts and hard hats.
Some guarded a gate.
Most looked as though they were wandering through the brush dressed to await a nuclear blast. I turned around and went back to the beginning and stopped several times to get some photos.
I have no idea why they are there or who they are, but they are creepy. My discomfort with them only increased when the border patrol stopped. He just wanted to make sure I was okay. My turning and stopping had gotten his attention in this area that is popular for undocumented worker crossings. I asked if he knew what these being were and he had no idea either.
Carry on. Whoever you are.
