Gas Stations Past:
Report of Monday’s drive:
This was the sun this morning thru the smoke. That bright California sun that would blind you normally, is easily photographed:
The continuing trip was still fruit/nut trees with some veggies.
There was the Sacramento River, then Sacramento skyline in the smoke.
Then the same for at least a 100 miles before we ran into hills on the right and continued farming on the left (east).
WE saw the California Aqueduct on our east side. Then again
wheat and orchard fields. The smoke actually seemed to get worse. Our wall temp shows 102 outside.
WE went into barren but beautiful tan rolling hills:
Also some burned areas
Again into groves and orchards:
Then houses going into the Bakersfield area.
And I expected some mountains after Bakersfield, but not REAL big mountains. SO... These mountains are like the ones in Utah and early Idaho.
Below is one of the 5 or 6 railroad tunnels thru rock way up above the road.
The above pictures are taken from 150 I shot. in the 430 miles LOL many blurred of course.
