We then headed back on the road and drove to LA without too many other highlights besides the forest fire smoke. The air looked gray and almost foggy, but as we drove through miles of it the smell of smoke told us it wasn’t just smog. We weren’t anywhere near the fires, but it was amazing (and slightly unsettling) to think that the smoke traveled so many miles. Besides the smoke there wasn’t much else noteworthy about the drive although the mountains past Bakersfield had such great colors with the sun beginning to set.
We finally made it to Los Angeles without much traffic to our amazement. I guess it was because it was after rush hour and a Monday night. After checking into our hotel we decided on the LA famous Pink's Hotdogs for dinner. Standing in a long line outside perusing the menu reminded us both of waiting for cheesesteaks at Geno’s or Pat’s. The hot dogs were worth the wait, and it was a great way to end a day California sightseeing.
