Aerial Los Angeles - the 101 Freeway through Caheunga Pass, Universal City, and Studio City, and a big chunk of the San Fernando Valley

I had occasion to fly from Los Angeles to Grand Junction and was fortunate enough to have the best window seat I've ever had. We took off out over the water from LAX and then looped south and flew directly over the L.A. Basin and the San Gabriel Mountains before heading across the Mojave Desert, over Central Nevada and Southern Utah before touching down in GJ. All in all, it was a great 85 minutes (even though a one-hour delayed departure made me miss a tee time!)


I particularly enjoyed this view because it is mostly our old 'hood - Studio City, Universal City, Toluca Lake, Sherman Oaks... and the rest of the wonderfully warm San Fernando Valley!
