I shot this while waiting for the Metro Gold Line to pass under me. I was standing on the Fair Oaks Blvd bridge near the South Pasadena and Pasadena border (yes, they are two separate cities).
The Route 66 section of Fair Oaks continues north towards the mountains shown above, and turns right heading east on Colorado Boulevard made famous for the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade.
There is enough history and photo opportunities to fill a month of daily photos. Our prolific photographer and writer-friend, Laurie Allee at Glimpses of South Pasadena, has featured plenty about the history and charm of this part of town.
