What Does Cal Trans Know, Anyway?

by Steve Reiss (Dalmdad Landscape Photography - www.dalmdad.com and https://www.facebook.com/Dalmdad.)

 Along US66, Mojave Desert, CA - A few weeks ago we actually had some rain.  I thought I heard or read somewhere that portions of US66 around Amboy were washed away and would not be repaired for a while.

I wanted to go to Roy's Cafe for a photo shoot, so I checked the Cal Trans website and was informed that US66 was open.



 

Unfortunately, Cal Trans has no clue about its own highways and their status.


US66 East at Ludlow, CA
US66 East at Kelbaker Road
US66 West - Immediately west of entrance to Amboy Crater
So, basically, Amboy could only be accessed via Kelbaker Road from I-40 or Amboy Road via 29 Palms. 

Anyway, at least Amboy was accessible and I managed to get some nice, original prints (coming soon).
