1931 BridgePhotographed: 2013
Location: Jacumba Hot Springs, California
This beautiful bridge was built in 1931 over the original Bankhead Highway bridge that was destroyed. Look in the background, and you will see telephone lines going through the original road that pre-dated US Route 80. The bridge is over the Arizona Eastern San Diego railway.
Clouds Over Round MountainPhotographed: 2015
Location: Eastern San Diego County
Round Mountain is one of the few peaks in San Diego County with a volcanic origin. It is a distinct and beautiful peak located North of Jacumba near the Carrizo Gorge before Interstate 8 winds its way through Mountain Springs and Myer Creek and Devils Canyon into the Imperial Valley.
I visit this area of Eastern San Diego County often, but I rarely encounter good cloud cover or a clearing storm. Those few times I pull over immediately.
It is also a non-contiguous part of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and has an American flag at the top. The San Diego and Arizona Eastern Railway runs at the foot of the mountain. The famous Goat Canyon Trestle is located several miles north in the Carrizo Gorge.
This image was made late in the morning in November as a storm was clearing.
