US 12 just east of Alpowa Summit, Washington:


I can't help but say that is one beautiful road picture. The road looks nice, and so does the scenery. I don't think I realized some parts of Washington looked quite like that, but it's pretty. I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised, though, because a lot of eastern Oregon looks kind of like that as well.

Thanks! I'm used to the Seattle area and the Peninsula, so that was a treat. I forgot my camera that week, so that's courtesy of an iPhone 6.

Lovely green hills!

For now, all that green can be attributed to the huge winter storms this year.  I got this pano from 198 on the descent from the Diablo Range.  Basically it over looks the San Andreas Fault, Gabilan Range, and Santa Lucia Range off in the distance:



Not exactly a road photo per se, but the view can't beat especially when it usually has a desert/semi-arid tinge to it.

Yeah I'll have to dig up my picture from the Kings River on Jackson Avenue this afternoon.  I've never seen even the river beds so full even the Central Valley.

I took this photo of the Deer Isle Bridge (ME 15 between Sedgwick and Deer Isle, Maine) a few weekends ago. First time capturing the Milky Way also!

A couple more I thought turned out really well this year...


CA 1 in Big Sur from the Nacimiento-Fergusson Road.  This is the section from Gorda to Limekiln State Park which was cut-off by the Mudcreek Slide and Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge crumbling:

The old abandoned Eastern Dixie Highway which is near Espanola, FL:

CA 180 at the bottom of Kings Canyon:

The Blue Ridge Parkway from the Water Rock Knob Overlook:

The overgrown portion of Old US 1/Overseas Highway on the Atlantic side of Boca Chica Key:

Mountain Route 296/Yokohl Valley Drive, I thought this looked great in black and white:

And the Golden Gate Bridge at sunrise:
