Perhaps they were involved in grading work or construction of homes up on Lakeridge. The vertical perspective in this Google Earth shot doesn't quite match the original, but I believe it's the same area.
Smart call! After discounting several theories, including escaped simians and Rod Serling portals, the construction equipment makes sense, particularly when viewed next to another "presumably" contemporaneous picture that has a red bodied cement truck with a white or light colored mixer. See far right of picture at 3 O'clock. (On the opposite hillside, there appears to be two larger red vehicles, suggesting the possibility that red was the favored color of the on-scene construction company.)
