Azusa, CA--Not far from Downtown Los Angeles is a western-themed town nestled against the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Incorporated in 1898, Azusa is one of the many scenic cities where highway travelers in the mid-century would stop in for a burger and a Coke along Route 66.
From Old Town Azusa (top photo), people can drive a few minutes up the canyon on HWY 39 and catch incredible views of our Southern California sunsets. The photo above was taken last night from within the canyon. LA’s skyline can be seen in the background.
