Us 99 Tour - Extended

Recommended Posts

My US 99 tour, in Southern California, is expanding. A couple years ago, I finally extended the tour south from Newhall Pass to near downtown Los Angeles. Now it is going north. From its former end at the Kern River in Bakersfield, I'm extending the tour further north to Delano, for now. I am working to extend the tour to at least the Pine and the Palm north of Fresno, California. In time, it may cover the whole valley, but one step at a time. I need a lot more photos for a tour and that will take a few more trips through the Valley.

Hey Mike,

 

That's really neat! I can imagine what fun it is to put all that together. Love the combination photos, vintage photos, maps & descriptions.

Thank you. It has been a project over the last 20 years.
