smog-free LA

A view of Los Angeles on an unusually haze-free day. The towering San Gabriel Mountains, normally obscured by haze and smog, are visible in the far distance. Mt. Baldy, an astonishing 40 miles distant from this overlook, is the tallest peak in the background.


LA can look like this all the time with your help; reduce your automobile emissions by carpooling and using the ever-expanding public transit system to rid this city of its infamous air pollution.

    Wonderful catch... anyone in LA should rush out with their cameras (sans cars, of course) on clear days like this!

    Hi, I would like to put this and the Harbour freeway interchange pic on my blog but when I try to save the image it wants to be saved as a "spaceball.gif" which is basically a 1x1 pixel image. If you email me the images I would be happy to do it. I think the whole world deserves to see that there actually is a very attractive LA to be seen and recognized.
