SkyWatch Friday, Looking at the Sky on Friday / Highway 18 in Southern California

This is highway 18 leading to the mountain resorts in the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California.
I stopped several times on my way to Lake Arrowhead to photograph the "yellow" everywhere.
I thoroughly enjoyed the yellow Spanish Broom in full bloom in our local mountains.
The scent is heavenly every year at this time!

Click on photos to enlarge!
The road along this stretch is like a roller-coaster.
The sky was as blue as blue can be without a single cloud in sight.

I was on Rt. 18 this past weekend. My Rt. 18 is near Lake Ontario in NY State. I like the curvy road and all the yellows and greens in your pictures.

Carolyn: That is a colorful look at the California hills under the blue sky.

What a gorgeous place. The yellow splash of color add to the beautiful scene.

The ground is ablaze as the road meanders into the hills. The pavement looks like a fun drive, but with flowers, mountains and sky to distract, one needs to stop, collect thoughts and pictures too! The Golden State looks lovely...
