Camarillo & Conejo Grade

Submitted by John on Mon, 07/16/2007 - 22:01.

I took this on top of the fairy's wheel during Camarillo Fiesta 2007.  Oh how I wished the weather was clearer.

Conejo Grade

Conejo Grade (AKA Camarillo Grade) separates West & East Ventura County.  During the Summer season the West side is about 10 degrees cooler than the East side.  You can actually see the temperature going down as you go over the Grade.

Conejo Grade is exactly 2 miles.  It takes 2 full minutes to go up and down.

Although this is a huge mountain 2 miles on freeway is not that much.  Still, there are a lot of people making a big deal out of going over this grade.

Once I had a job at Westlake Village.  I had a co-worker commuting from Simi Valley.  When she learned that I commuted from Camarillo (drive over the Conejo Grade), she commented how far I drove every day.   So I said, "It's not that far, it's only 15 miles away".   She looked at me and said, "But, you drive over the Grade".  I didn't say anything to her, but that's when I realized some people hate to drive over the Camarillo Grade.
