And I had a blast. I left LA Sunday around noon and got home at 7:00pm. Long drive but as you can see by the pictures a very beautiful one. I stopped at the Pyramid Lake Visitor's Center on my way home. I have always wanted to stop and check it out. So I am inside looking at all the pictures and the info and they have three drinking fountains there with a big sign that says. Taste California's Liquid Gold. So I took a drink. It wasn't what I expected, it turns out that California's "liquid gold" is water, not beer. LOL
The hill sides were peppered with orange and purple flowers. I don't know what kind they were but they were so pretty. Also the whole drive down there are orchards and vineyards on both sides of the freeway and you could smell the blossoms from the trees. It was so pretty. It reminded me of my Jasmine plant at home. The smell was intoxicating. It was almost like I had a truck full of flowers, but in between the bouquet of freshness you would have some farms and all you could smell was cow crap and it made you want to throw up. Good thing that the next mile was back to orchards. LOL
I always crack up when I go to LA. Some random things are just funny. Like the random dust tornado's in the middle of no where. I saw at least 10 of them. Literally in the middle of no where. I also think that the tumble weeds that are half the size of Volkswagen bugs are funny when they cruise across the freeway, the single oil well in the middle of the city of Burbank. It is a couple blocks from the High School right down main street. It totally doesn't belong there. I also like the bases of the signs in the freeway in LA. They are lined with barbed wire so that the taggers can't spray graffiti on the signs, Oh and another funny thing is that people carve their graffiti in the side of the dirt hillside through the canyons. I love the drive cause it makes me laugh. Good times. I do have more pictures and I will post them later today.
