Our drive to the K-Stan today, consisted of The Better Half driving the truck to the (roughly) half-way point between Wickenburg, AZ and Torrance, CA: Chiriaco Summit by the Patton Museum. This interesting museum has an outdoor display of classic tanks and some other relics, including this classic fire rig. I drove the second half of the excursion through the metroplexes of the much-too-developed Coachella Valley, Banning Pass, Inland Empire, Greater LA Area and, finally, the South Bay area of SoCal.
This trip, I brought my seldom-used Canon SX40HS camera and took the above photo along with a lot of snapshots along the route up until the point until I took the helm. Thereafter, TBH uses her more sophisticated Canon EOS to capture the rest of the trip on digital “film.” She always gets the superior camera shots. Unfortunately, she did not get a shot of the fire rig, so you’ll have to just enjoy my sophomoric effort of photographing this classic above. Clickable image.
