US50 West in California

153 near Coloma

This is near Clarksville in the Sierra foothills.

[US50 West]

This is almost the last of the foothills. The valley is half visible through the smog. Usually when you come down out of the Sierra foothills, you can only see maybe ten miles into the valley. On smog free days, you won't believe how far you can see.

[US50 West]

This is almost back in Sacramento. This is approaching the El Dorado-Sacramento County line. Sacramento has a distinct rush hour. This part of US 50 could have been Interstate 70. It was submitted to be an interstate, but it was rejected. US50 officially ends in Sacramento, but it used to follow US99 towards Manteca.
