Something I love about LA is that if you know what you are doing, you can drive for twenty minutes and find yourself somewhere where you feel million miles away from civilization. I was feeling stir crazy yesterday, so I headed for the mountains. I did a nice long ride up on Little Tujunga Canyon Rd to Bouqet Canyon Rd to Palmdale, and back down on Angeles Forest Hwy to the 2.
I drove past the reservoir. I like driving on little roads, at places I've never been before. There is always something interesting to find.
This weird piece of faux classical architecture sits on an otherwise deserted stretch of Vasquez Cny Rd that connects Little Tujunga Cny to Sierra Hwy. People build the weirdest things at the weirdest places.
Bouqet Cny Rd had a real nice stretch with hardly any traffic, a babbling brook right along the road, and occasionally odd little houses perched on or nestling against hills and rocks.
Palmdale failed to impress me. This is a spot on the edge of town where I wandered off.
In this is what happens when you use camera flash against highly reflective traffic signs.
From the whole trip this is probably my favorite image. It got a bit rainy and the hills in the back are wrapped in fog.
