I woke up about 12 minutes before landing and saw Los Angeles glowing outside the window. The view is toward the southeast from nortwest of the city. From bottom to top, the Grapevine (I-5) enters the San Fernando Valley as the Golden State Freeway, continuing between Verdugo Mountain on the left and the Hollywood hills on the right. Highway 210, the Foothill Expresswayl, winds around the left, or East side of Verdugo. Downtown L.A. is the bright white spot under the fog beyond the Hollywood Hills. All of the West Side, down to LAX and the ocean, glows under a low fog near the top of the shot.
