Funky random things seen along the way...

... that I took pictures of, through the windows. 'Cause that's how I roll on our roadtrips. :-)

Pronunciation, please?

Very dramatic canyon that the interstate curves through, near AZ/UT border ...

I wish I could give you some better idea as to the sheer hugeness of this poster/banner (???). The silos were gigantic. The banner made them appear small in comparison.

How's this for a "room with a view?" (somewhere in Montana)

You know you're back in Cali when everything is all golden waves of really dry amber...

Water rights? Oh yeah, hot button in the valley. Signs like these seen all up and down Hwy 5. It's not pretty. Sad to see dead almond tree orchards. It's one thing to shut down a crop here and there; but, orchards, too? It's not like they can exactly be recovered when it finally rains again.

I would pronounce it "zizix". And I've been through that canyon probably a dozen times, its a pretty ride!

Driven by Zzyzx Rd sign many times (moved from UT to CA, left grown kids in UT, many trips back and forth). It's always a good sign to watch for at the end of the alphabet game.
