I have taken some pictures of the roads I drove on, but until then, you can see below a short video with some of the most interesting highways that I drove on:

When were you in Arizona? I was there in the middle of October myself, driving around.

Bertha making progess

"Bertha", the tunnel boring machine digging a new route for Washington State Highway 99 underneath downtown Seattle, is making good progress. As you may know, there was a long delay earlier in the project when the cutter head was damaged and had to be brought to the surface and replaced. Since then, Bertha has been making good time. When the new tunnel becomes operational in 2019, the waterfront viaduct can finally be removed.

From the Seattle Times.

^ It's easy to see things like this on the internet and forget what an absolute marvel of engineering this project is.

The last picture is so cool, like something out of a science fiction movie. It's amazing how a machine can dig and line a tunnel of this size.

And equally amazing that same machine can be put out of commission for over a year by a 10' pipe nobody knew about.

It's a great freeway, I have worked and stayed in Palmdale (the town at the end of the video) many times, the place is a dump but the scenery is amazing. CA-14 isn't actually Sierra Highway, the old road runs mostly parallel to it through the mountains.

At around 4:00, to the left is Vasquez Rocks, where you can see the rock formation where Captain Kirk had his famous fight with the Gorn.

^ Yeah, I agree. I've been through Palmdale and Lancaster a few times, and I don't find there is much to love about the towns. Not much of the Mojave Desert is all that interesting to me. That said, though, US-395 through the Owens Valley an hour or so north is very beautiful to me.
