California - Old US 99 - CA 99

CA Route 99, former US 99

Photos follow my travel southward.

Looking east from around Los Molinos at the base of Lassen National Forest.

These humps, these humps, are southeast of Chico nearing Route 149.

Sutter Buttes are to the southwest.

Downtown Fresno, looking north from around G Street.

Most of the road is in a broad valley, so there's not much to see until the south end. I started hitting sunset 14 miles from the end of the road.

Bear Mountain to the east, Tehachapi Mountains to the south and left, San Emigdio Mountains to the south and right. I-5 and formerly US 99 cuts between the latter two ranges in Castaic Valley.

Panning from Grapevine in the south across Wheeler Range (the base of the San Emigdios) to the west.

A grand pan from the Tehachapis in the east to Wheeler Ridge (part of Wheeler Range) in the west.

CA Route 99 ends at I-5 in Wheeler Ridge (the settlement by the landform).

Continue south on old US 99 to the Grapevine
Back north on old US 99 to Red Bluff
