We skip Alaska, because there are no real freeways there, so we land in Arizona.

We start with Phoenix ofcourse.

Have a look at Google Earth. The road leading outside Anchorage is 2×2, and a freeway (20 km)

Next is Tucson, the second largest city in Arizona. However of significant size, it only has one freeway really serving the city.

1. I-10 near downtown, look at the size of this city

That's not I-65. It's US 231 heading North into the city, about 3 miles south of my parents' house, actually.

This thread is so random, but speaking of San Francisco, the best view is from US 101/I 80 into the city, the view from 280 is not as good.

Another interesting one is to follow CA 35 on the western most side of the city entering and passing through Lake Merced and the Great Highway, you'd never realize you actually entered San Francisco.

If you look closely, you can see that this highway does not meet interstate standards (the left and right exits are the clue) and it also appears that a new approach is being built off to the right...but otherwise great pics! Look forward to the rest of the states.
