I think this morning we drove under the last of the dense cloud layers that we’re likely to see in Cali. I enjoyed seeing the sun on the flanks of the hills…
…and ahead of us as we climbed into the visible humidity.
We even found at least two large herds of mechanical dragons.
Then, we crossed a pass, and, zip, no more clouds.
And into the city, the giant metro area. This species is the city flower. A showy choice as you’d expect for LA.
Here’s the City Hall tower; you’ve seen it in many movies and TV shows.
And, in the busy train station, a for-real shoeshine stand.
Here’s the busy corridor that crosses under the tracks, allowing access to each of the tracks above. Cops arrived in the golf cart; the fine is at least $1500 for going up to the tracks without a valid ticket, the sign said. We just didn’t get caught. Heh.
BTW, this city traffic, wow, exhausting. Sleepy-time for this blahger….
