The Ridge Route

I've driven 99 from Bakersfield south many times, and even did the Ridge Route once (open only in summer, and you'll probably not meet a soul). So this one really struck home for me.

We come with the dust

On the edge of your cities you'll see me and then,
I come with the dust and I've gone with the wind.

- Woody Guthrie
