Through the Desert

The landscape from California to Nevada is quite impressive.  Over the space of five-six hours driving the I-15 takes you from overlooking the Californian coast line, with waves crashing on white sandy beaches, through the Mojave desert and up along the Eastern flank of the Santa Ana mountains, before dropping back into desert and arriving in Las Vegas.

On our trip back from Vegas to San Diego, we were lucky enough to get some late snow the night before we drove.  The surrounding mountains were sprinkled in white and at the Cajon pass the snow had made its way down to the highway.  Below is a photo essay of our road trip along the I-15.
