He's always bypassing certain fuel stops and wary of trees over streets and bridges and streets or lots where he can't turn around.
I dunno, I guess it was all the traffic at the moment distracting me and later him. The photo doesn't reflect all the cross drives branching into that driveway at and just before that final right turn around the tree into that barrier.
If we had entered at one of the other entrances which are more open and direct off other side streets, both he and I would have had better long range visual awareness.
No doubt, we just missed it as we approached. I guess it would be like entering an intensely busy light intersection, with all lanes moving and full, and not noticing that, for some reason, a particular traffic light is too low to clear.
Not whining here, just trying to let others be aware of this unexpected circumstance.
