Roads in Southern California - February 22, 2007
From the long loop: CA 55 to CA 91 to I-15 to I-10 to CA 86S to I-10
to US 95 to I-40 to I-15 to I-10 to I-5 to I-710 to I-405.
In the Costa Mesa/Santa Ana area in the morning.
Now up on the 91, heading toward Riverside County.
Coming up on I-15 from the 91.
Now on the 15.
I-10 apparently follows a scenic route.
Getting onto I-10.
As we leave the most congested area, the speed limit rises to 70, but
the flow of traffic was easily doing 85.
Approaching Palm Springs.
Historic US 99 is around here, but I was too slow to get a picture
and in too much of a hurry to get off and check it out.
My exit to go down to see the Salton Sea is CA 86S.
CA 86S is a safety corridor.
Crossing with a cul-de-sac.
Back northbound after a quick look through Desert Shores.
On the climb up from the Salton Sea area, there are many stops where
you can get water for your car's radiator. Fortunately, this was a
nice and cool day. I missed getting the picture of the sign that
marks where the road climbs up to sea level.
At the Joshua Tree N.P. exit.
Back at I-10.
There's not much happening in Desert Center.
This will be my exit after the hop across to the cheaper Arizona gas.
Still California, but not for long.
In Arizona, getting back onto I-10 to get back to California.
California wants to make sure no one brings anything in to damage
This time, I take this exit.
And I'll be on US 95 for a while.
Getting onto I-40 west in Needles.
And some captures from short videos to get some things after dark:
The Daggett exit near I-40's western terminus.
7 miles to Barstow on I-40.
Coming up on the I-15 junction at I-40's western terminus.
I think this is the last I-40 westbound shield. No signs indicating
the end, unfortunately.
On I-15 South, passing the current southern terminus of US 395.
On I-15 South, approaching the I-10 junction.
On I-10 West, approaching the junction of US 101 and I-5 in LA.
Closer to the interchange.
Now on the Long Beach Freeway, I-710, passing the 91.
Coming up on the 405 on the 710.
