Highway 5 Over the Grapevine

The grapevine is the stretch of highway 5 between Santa Clarita and the Central Valley.  These pictures are taken around sunrise after a recent snow.  It may be necessary to click on the pictures to see them fully.  I'll have to change the shape of the blog to accommodate pictures. 

Snow patterns on the hills. 

Three different textures at top, lower middle, and bottom. 

The effects of sunrise over the grapevine, as we descend towards the central valley. 

More sunrise.  Funny place for a ski slope.  You'll want to wait for the truck traffic to clear before hitting bottom. 

The final descent towards the central valley.  A runaway truck ramp is visible on the right, with an alien invader peaking over the hill.
