Welcome to Dorris, California. Two miles (3.2 k) from the Oregon border. The dust storm arrived ahead of me.
This is not a fish-eye lens - this little road on the east side of Dorris really does bend like this. The fine dust was everywhere - I just managed to find a 'hole' in the storm to shoot this image.
U.S. Highway 97 snakes around several sharp turns in this tiny township. Large signs warn not to exceed 25 MPH. The turns are posted at 15 MPH. All of the markings of a classic 'speed trap'. This road runs from Mount Shasta to Klamath Falls, Oregon - and then straight up the eastern side of the Cascade Mountains. This was how I decided to drive up to the Portland area two weeks ago. I was tired of driving Interstate 5. It was the beginning of quite an adventure. Come along if you wish...
