Mexico Monday redux, Week 17
I confess that not all this week’s images are from Mexico, so it’s a bit of a mixture of Mexico Monday and Memory Monday — but they are the last of the slides grouped together in small boxes, so I present them here today. I’ll start off with pictures from a holiday trip I took with my mom and dad during December 1973, just for the pleasure of traveling in Mexico and doing some tourist-type stuff we had never had time for during the summer.
Coming home to California from the warm December weather in Mexico, we ran into snow on Interstate 5 in the Tehachapi Mountains north of L.A. You may notice the white peaks in the background; some people are out of their cars, waiting for the messy road to clear. This was shot near Hughes Lake Road at Castaic.
And finally — I’m not sure how this last slide ended up in the box with these others; it dates from our July 1978 vacation to British Columbia. On our return trip south, we stopped for a few hours in Olympia, Washington, for a tour of the state capitol building. I don’t recall even seeing the nearby Supreme Court building and there’s no mention of it in my vacation log, but apparently my dad took a picture.
