I couldn't post this last week when I took it since my new PC hadn't been set up yet so here it is for your Friday viewing enjoyment!



Can't hardly see the mountains today for all the smog...

have you lived in LA all your life?

when i was kid growing up in long beach/lakewood 30 years ago you could NEVER see the mountains, ever

but i would say since the early 90s the air is a million times more clear

Ken obviously has one heck of a camera/lens combo. Zooming in, you can see my boy. winking smiley


Mt. Baldy last Saturday

After that we came down your way, sort of, to Dockweiler. Snow and sand in one day.

Driving up the 73 into Irvine every day I can see Newport Bay, the snow covered mountains and the saddlebacks. Almost makes up for the three speed traps I pass along the way.

Which airport is that, Ontario? Seems like every time a TV commercial is shot in an airport setting, they use Ontario's new terminal...

After a rainstorm that covers the entire LA basin, it's not at all unusual to see the mountains up north nowadays.

In fact, when I lived in Torrance, after one of those periods of rain, I could easily see the Hollywood sign (and the mountains) when driving north on the overpass on Prairie Avenue which skirts the Mobil refinery. The atmosphere was crystal clear. And that's looking across the entire LA basin, a distance of over 35 miles!

My first encounter with CA smog was memorable too. In February of 1971, I came through the San Bernadino pass headed for LA. The pass looked like it was in the midst of a DENSE FOG, which I thought it was. Visibility was limited to about 200 yds! Except it wasn't fog, it was SMOG! Sheesh! When I arrived at my sister's place in west LA, the sky was again sunny and clear.
