It is definitely beautiful country.  US 30 in PA is a very scenic drive, whether you're into mountain scenery, historic towns, or even farmland.  The stretch of 30 between Latrobe and Gettysburg (137 miles) goes through great examples of each of them.

Is this onramp disused?

Yeah, there is a matching disused off-ramp on the other side of the road as well.  I don't know the backstory behind these off-ramps, though the Hollywood Freeway is one of the oldest in Southern California.

Took this last September from one of the pulloffs on the Moki Dugway in Utah and it's become one of my favorite road pictures I've taken.

The moki dugway might be my favorite road I've ever driven!  I took a detour from my southwest road trip just so I could drive it.  Amazing.  I know there's a guy on here who has the infamous sign at the bottom as his avatar.

Bumping this thread to show off some long exposure photos I took earlier today on a spontaneous trip down to Northern Virginia for work. These two are overlooking I-95 from the Commerce Street overpass in Springfield, with the first looking toward the Mixing Bowl. It was still slightly light outside, so it took me a few tries to finally get the correct exposure time to produce acceptable photos.





And here's one that isn't a freeway, but I still liked how it came out. Pennsylvania Avenue looking down toward the Capitol Building.

Your presumption is correct! A bicycle photobombed my photo as I was taking it. At first I wanted to try to photoshop it out, but I sort of like it.
