The Prettiest Freeway Exit You've Ever Seen

 

Cannon Road exit in Carlsbad

 

OK this might be a bit of exaggeration but the Cannon Road exit off the Interstate 5 freeway here in Carlsbad is pretty darn nice, as far as on-ramps and exit-ramps go. I suppose that's a rather odd thing thing to write about.

I look forward to it every year and it's at the height of color right now.

It's not the easiest thing to photograph, I might add, but getting on and off the freeway is a pleasure, and if you are lucky enough to get stuck at one of the ilghts - not hard to do - snapping a quick photo works. Just don't get distracted or you'll have a problem.

Gorgeous, Jeff. Who could resist? And with a title like that I couldn't resist peeking further at your post and am glad that I did.

Hi Jeff --- from your post title, I knew it would be a blanket of color provided by the beautiful products manufactured by nature in Carlsbad.

Must admit it, Jeff Dowler ... that is one amazing sight.  Sure beats the ramps I typically see here in Chicagoland by far ... thanks for sharing ...

Well, it sure isn't that often that people post about freeway exists, but this is worth it.  Those are so pretty and would  be fun to drive by.  My kids would love them too. :-) -Kasey

Hi Troy Erickson  - nice to see you! There's lots of purple flowers right now and you can see them on many of the hills in people's yards.

Hey James Dray  - thanks. It just keeps getting better each year as they spread. And this doesn't even show the one exit ramp that is hundreds of feet of flowers, with others types and colors, too.

Ha ha Maggie Dokic  Indeed, that might create some issues. But what fun!!

And I knew that Debbie Gartner 

It's hard to not be distracted, despite how many times I have seen it  and I get off and on this exit often Joe Pryor

Hi Jeff - That really is pretty, and I'd bet the bees are happy. When I lived in PA, they were planting that all along the interstates.

Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI NMLS#1483386  Norm - No doubt that's true. But I bet your flowers right now are pretty nice, too!

Thank you Sheila Anderson  I love driving past this exit (on the local road)

Thanks Nina Hollander  - it was fun to finally stop (at a couple of lights) and be able to snap a photo.

Michael Jacobs  - nature is manufacturing some amazing beauty right now!

Belinda Spillman - That WAS ironic, wasn't it? Traffic was real slow on the freeway, as it can be on Saturdays, so they didn't blur. I was not moving when these were taken but luckily got stopped at a couple of lights there.

Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi  - well we have some ugly exit ramps too, although mostly closer to the city

Kasey & John Boles and the team at Jon Gosche Real Estate, LLC  - other than the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, this is one of the most beautiful collections of flowers I have seen. So nice to have it along these roads to enjoy!

Hi Dick Greenberg  - no doubt there are lots of happy bees. How could they NOT be?! I didn't realize you lived in PA before - where? I grew up outside Philadelphia.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

That is eye-catching.  Very vivid shade of purple.  Nature has such a variety of color and beauty.  Thankfully it's not all the same or it wouldn't be beautiful.

Hi Mick Michaud 

It's totally changed already and not nearly as vivid as it was. I think I saw it at the peak! Thanks for stopping by!
