Part 3 of a summer road trip...
Leaving Ashland was a sad business. But I do so love a good drive, even when I'm driving away from a glorious summer holiday.
The fast changing view from my car window included snowed topped Shasta peaks, blood orange sunsets...
... high mountain valleys & roadside cherry stands.
And no road trip down the Northern 101 would be complete without a pancake stop in Salinas, CA.
There are some really lovely old buildings and signs in that town. Marquees that look like they were there before color.
I always think about those great American depression writers & photographers when I pass through Salinas. Although, I never have visited Mr. Steinbeck's museum.
