Photos in the Snow
« on: March 01, 2009, 10:24:10 PM »

Hey all!

In Philly, its snowing pretty hard as I type this message. This got to my attention on creating a new topic where all the members post some road photos (if any) in snow. I'll start...

I'll try to get pics tomorrow, but I doubt I will leave my street! (Where I am, we're predicting 8-12 inches).

I walked about 45 minutes to get this photo at the tale end of a 2000 snowstorm in Newark, Delaware:



Last November, Andy and I drove to the west end of the eastern segment of California 168, which took us above the snow line. We stopped at the end and got out for a few minutes:

Here's I-84 at the US-197 junction in the Dalles

US-30 near Scappoose, Ore


Here's the first eastbound I-80/US 189 reassurance shield in Wyoming


SR 903 at its end

I've got dozens more but those are the first few I could quickly find

Here's a few more from my offline collection of uncropped photos (eventually I'll get them all online)


Here's US-30 at the I-405 junction in West Portland.

Here's US-30 where it splits from I-84 to go through Cascade Locks

When I drove from Tacoma back to Idaho this December I decided to go through Oregon to maximize the amount of new road I'd be able to drive. I knew there was a storm coming but figured I could just outrun it, but that wasn't the case, so I ended up doing a lot of road photography in one of the biggest snowstorms to hit Portland in a decade


Here's C-125 just north of the C-127 junction by the Wyoming line. Really interesting ice surface on that road. Also, I think the Colorado shield is already one of my favorites, but it looks particularly nice in snow

I have plenty of photos taken while driving in the snow.  Living in Upstate New York, it really can't be avoided.  I'm including a picture from December 2000 of the famous US 104 shields in Oswego, NY, at the northern terminus of NY 48.  As of January 2009, the shields were still there.

I drove through snow on my recent trip to Milford, PA. I'll have photos up soon on http://www.millenniumhwy.net/roadtrips.html. Look for my 2004 trip to Washington DC for some snow photos along I-68 in the meantime.
