Me and Cricket went up the 5 fwy. over the grapevine and saw this at the bottom.
but this was not our destination we had further to drive.we continued to the 166 exit and shot past those agricultural fields and on to the Carrizo Plain National Monument. We turned off onto a dirt road and came in a back entrance to the monument. There were some road survey crews there along with cows, of course.All the Southern slopes were sprayed various shades of yellow.We drove down along the san andreas fault. The fog clouded the hills a little. The smell was intense.
We drove around soda lake then returned back thru the Monument, looking for antelope. but alas saw noneWe came back to L.A. via Ojai. A long twisting road through the mountains.
