California Highway 46

Lost Hills to Paso Robles

This isolated stretch of desert highway — randomly routed by Google Maps as a leg along the fastest route from Los Angeles to Santa Cruz — evokes the mythological spirit of the American West; a dry, remote landscape that is at once forbidding and starkly beautiful.

In a hyper-connected world that is mapped and cataloged down to the smallest storefront, it is easy to forget that such remote places still exist.
