As I mentioned earlier, I got up super early for the drive back to San Diego from Arizona, so I could see the sun coming up over the desert, and take some pictures for you.
I love driving parallel to a sunrise or sunset, especially when there is a mountain range between you and the sun. That way, you get to see the sun rise or set multiple times.
I know, I am still taking pictures from inside my car while I drive. I put the camera on the seat beside me. I just pick it up now and then, and point it out the window without taking my eyes off the road. Not all the pictures come out worth saving, but I am a good driver, and I do this in a safe way. Also, cool lens flare!
Unless you were a professional driver, do not try this. Stop to take photos!
There is one rest area in the California desert that has always intrigued me. The ground is covered with big lava rocks, but there doesn’t seem to be any evidence of an old volcano anywhere near by.
But that is obviously lava, and it doesn’t appear too weathered… so where did the volcano go?
I should really Google that someday.
America is freekin’ big. Good thing I had my 70’s rock and roll to listen to.
Coming up next, I actually stopped the car and got out to take some pictures for you, at the base of the mountain range just east of San Diego.
