All pictures were taken today. My travels today basically took me to the ends of the world and back. And as I always do now, I carried my camera with me. So I figured I'd snap a bunch of pictures while on the road of the different places I went today.
Here I am, heading westbound on Interstate 10, approaching Downtown LA
And the usual crawl at the point where the 10 and the 101 meet up.
Heading right through the heart of Downtown on the 101.
Perhaps the three most "touristy" streets in all of SoCal. I exited Santa Monica Blvd, to pick up a few things at a pro audio store in West Hollywood. I would've taken pictures, but that street demands your full attention. If I had a passenger, I would've had him or her take pix.
Heading back east towards home, it looks like there's going to be some monsoon activity out in the low desert. Just take a gander at these thunderheads off in the distance. Maybe tomorrow, I'll head out towards Palm Springs and Indio and do a little storm chasing. Anyway, this is now on the Eastbound 10, right around the Upland/Ontario border, approaching Euclid Ave. (duh)
...and the Montclair Mall, which is about 3 miles west of Euclid Ave. There's going to be some lightning and rainpour about 50 miles east of here!
Vineyard Ave, the exit to Ontario Airport. Interestingly, unlike most of the airports I've been to, ONT
isn't really all that visible from the freeway. The offramp itself, plus buildings and trees obscure most of the view from anyone passing on the 10 in either direction.
The Crossroads of the Inland Empire. Eastbound I-10 at the I-15 junction, about 3 miles east of Ontario Airport.
Heading south on the 15 between Mira Loma and Norco. Picture faces roughly southeast.
Hmm..decisions decisions......Would one continue heading south on the I-15, which is where this shot was taken, and eventually get to Americas Finest City, or do I endure the logjam on the Westbound 91, the gateway to Orange County, home to some of Californias finest beaches and highest priced real estate......or....go east on the 91 to....Rivertucky...I mean Riverside?
