I always get asked by people I meet here why I would choose to leave California. Well, does this help you to understand?
This picture was taken as I came over the mountains to land at Ontario Airport in California. While there are a few very high clouds the rest of that brown crap that is obscuring your view is smog. Notice how it obliterates your view of the sunset and the horizon? From here on a clear day you should be seeing on the left, and in the distance, a view of the sun sinking into the Pacific Ocean.
