Welcome to Eric Buchanan's Highway Photos Web Site!



[US101 North in Monterey County]

This is US101 North in San Ardo in 1986. This was taken in Monterey County. I used to do this trip about once a year.

This hobby website is intended for highway enthusiasts and people who work with highways, to allow you to see many photos from highway trips across the US and Canada.  If you're a fan of roads, you have come to the right place. This site emphasizes road trips heavily, and doesn't include any exit lists (too many others have done that much better than I can.)

I also have a few sign photos. I was one of the first sites to host a large number of highway photos. Of course my photos of Interstate 80 are the most popular on my entire site.

I cover all kinds of highways. Interstate highways, US Highways, state highways, county highways, and Canadian highways. And also I have photos of former highways.

Please contribute to my site by sending in your highway photos on my submissions page.
Thank you to all the contributors to my site! I am open to all highway related correspondence and people have written me with information about highways I did not know at all. I cannot provide travel advice nor map directions, as lined out in the frequently asked questions page.

My first set of links is of Interstates and US Highways (including some former US Highways), and the other categories are at the bottom of the page.

For those of you who know me guess what: The virus is still going on where I live. I have a bunch of high powered AM radios. I can hear an AM station out of Las Vegas (KDWN 720) a little during the day. I can hear KFI 640 out of Los Angeles during the day. They are easy to get at night since AM travels far at night. I can hear HAM radio operators on shortwave radio from about 400 miles away easily. A lot of the guys I have been friends with during the past ten years are close to my age. PG and E is done with my neighborhood. Now the phone company is installing fiber optic lines on my street. They had a machine that would burrow the cables underground and they did not have to jack up a lot of concrete. The noise was horrible.


These two cats live two doors down. These photos are from 2018. These cats are related to the big black tomcat that lived here from 1993 to 2001. Also he has posterity like these cats a quarter of a mile away. I have seen cats in other neighborhoods just like these two.

[Cat photos]


These are from June 2022. The first photo shows three story row houses built next to a busy boulevard that is not shown in the photo. This is in my neighborhood. No wonder home values have gone up so much. Just to the left there is a rail line that is not in the photo. Also I have noticed that water conservation talk is not aimed at new houses. The second photo shows a huge office building being built in my neighborhood. There used to be a few houses, a few trees, and open space in the land where the office building is being built. They were all taken out over the years. The office building is probably 1000 yards long. I am not sure regular housing developments are even done anymore where I live. They tend to be shoe horned in. Places with big houses tend to be close together. There is a new neighborhood north of mine where a street is like a driveway with speed bumps.

This is from the fall of 1987. This was a car that dummy bought for HIMSELF. My mom drove it then after a while he would not let her drive it and he stopped driving it himself. Later on he took out battery from under the hood and put it in the car. By the way the state I am in made it hard to own cars like this after a while. I almost never see classic cars anywhere where I live anymore. I had a group of rotten "friends" who were into cars like this this year. They worked on them all the time since they were not any good at fixing cars. I am kind of surprised they did not get hurt working on them. Back then I figured I liked this kind of car. I realized as I got older I did not. The only cars before my time I like are from BMW. I do not drive fast anyway. And above all just behind this picture is where the sheriff's department used to pull people over 15 times a day! I mean I could look out my window and see a deputy pull over a pickup then retrieve guns and goats from it! I did not want any tickets. And not to digress but the sheriff's department I am talking about is currently accused of serious corruption. Dummy never would have gotten this car for me. When my mom dumped him he had to ask her permission to sell it and he had to split the money with her. The air conditioner was excellent. I think he worked on it a lot in the time frame when he drove it. It was pretty reliable and well made. But then again it was HIS. He stopped washing it about 10 years before he had to sell it. It was never used on southern California trips. My mom and I evacuated to San Antonio in it in August 1980 because of Hurricane Allen. Right after that we moved to California. It was a disaster. We drove off in dummy's Mercedes and in my mom's Chevette and went to Sunnyvale. My mom flew back alone to Corpus Christi. She packed up and the moving crew were the kind of guys that belonged behind bars! This fat guy was not wearing a shirt and walked up to her and said "do you have any coffee lady?" I think these guys got fired for the way they acted! The fat guy walked by Dummy's Porsche with book cases in the garage. Another guy flushed a bunch of paper towels down the toilet. Then they load up the moving van. Dummy's Porsche is towed along and gets dumped off in downtown San Jose. They did not "know" how to get it to our house. We were lucky it was not stolen. My stuff was almost completely lost.
