The Road to the pacific ocean

Interstate 10 Series

We have traveled on Interstate 10 from Santa Monica, California in the west to Jacksonville, Florida in the east, a total of 2,431 miles. The road brought us through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida – eight states in all.

We saw oceans, deserts, mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes, and swamps. We also viewed amazing wildlife and unique plant life like the Joshua Trees in California, the majestic Saguaro in Arizona, the Yucca in New Mexico, the Prong Horn and Roadrunners in Texas, the Alligators of the Louisiana Bayou, the Alligator Turtle of Mississippi, the USS Alabama Battleship in Mobile, Alabama, and the beautiful beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean in Florida.

This will be the last installment in our series Interstate 10. Come along as we travel the “Barber Road” to the Pacific Ocean…

Interstate 10 with all its potholes, cracks, and pumps provides us with a great opportunity to see the amazing change in topography, plant life, wildlife, and culture throughout the southern USA. If you’ve never traveled on this road before, what are you waiting for – get in your car, your van, your truck or your RV and see it first hand. Until next time, safe journey to all, as we continue to travel on the “Barber Road.”
