Desert pix
 
I took some pix this week while driving from the desert towards San Diego
I had all the time in the world, it was 98 degrees F, ( 33.6 C ) on the desert floor
the truck that i was following had a ships King Post on it, its used to transfer anything from ship to ship while at sea, called an UNREP ( underway replenishment ) the ship is being built in San Diego at NASSCO
this truck never went over 50 MPH & climbing the hill, we may have gone 20 MPH

Cool pics GT! Definitely looks like a stretch of highway where you better have what you need before you get on the road! :)

There are places along the grade to stop for water for your vehicle too! The topography is awesome along this stretch! You go from sand to rock to semi forest.

As always GT, thanks for the fix!!! :)

this sign reads the highway name for this part of Interstate 8 in California
Kumeyaay Highway.
you may strain your vocal cords if you try to say it, its the Indian tribal name for the different bands of indians around San Diego
