Siskiyou Summit

Normally, when you take a picture from your car, it doesn’t come out too good. Usually the photo is blurry, not well framed, and/or looking through dirty glass.

I took today’s photo from the fast lane, heading north, on I-5 just south of the Oregon/California border, about 15 miles south of Ashland. A dangerous shot to take from the driver’s seat, no? Actually no. We were parked in the fast lane! I didn’t even have the engine running, and my window was rolled down despite the temperature.

Cars and trucks were chaining up to head over the pass. We didn’t move from this position in the fast lane for over 15 minutes. I think the driver of the truck in this pic was taking his chains off after making it over the Siskiyou Summit coming from Oregon.
