Santa Monica Terminus

Freeway Ends

Is there a more satisfying road sign to see after a long road trip?

It was for me when I drove from St. Louis to Los Angeles. Interstate 10 from Texas to California was a visual treat but it seemed like it would never end.

The thrill of seeing the Pacific washed all the fatigue away.

I think of it every time I make my way to Santa Monica, where the freeway ends, like I did for this session on the pier.
