Here’s a rare glimpse down below the Golden State’s Highway 99.
This image shows the desert beneath Highway 99 in the Northern Sierra Nevada Mountains near San Francisco.
The image was taken by photographer Paul Toth in September 2017.
The desert is dotted with rocky outcrops and canyons that can only be seen from a short distance above.
It’s an area that’s rarely photographed.
In fact, this is the only photo of the area taken from the air.
The Golden State Highway 99 is about a quarter-mile from the nearest road in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The images were taken on November 14, 2017, by Toth from his helicopter.
