Welcome to Eric Buchanan's Highway Photos Web Site!



[Henry Coe in February 1996]

This is Henry Coe State Park in February 1996. I was on my commute and I took this with a zoom lens.

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. I know 11 types of martial arts and I am really into genealogy. I am learning eleven kinds of computer programming. I mainly use NetBSD and I do not know Windows that well. I could not make and run this site on windows.

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 has gotten worse. I was wondering if life was getting back to normal in some ways until recently. My mom and I are vaccinated. Almost no one we know had it and they were asymptomatic. This has been a cool summer. Last summer the weather from a hurricane blew into my area and stayed for over a week. This was worse than 99% of the heat waves I had in Corpus Christi. Not surprisingly there were dangerous thunderstorms in the hills east of my town since it was just too hot and a dangerous fire got going. I did not figure it was going to get my town and definitely not my neighborhood. The sky looked so strange from the smoke and it was almost like winter in the August 2020. The sun was a weird blazing orange color and there were days it was supposed to be 100 and did not even go above 75 because of the smoke. Everything outside looked funny from how bad the sky looked. One day the city sent an email out saying that evacuation warnings would go off once a big fire line was cut behind the ridge we see from town. That day it was hot and it looked like a mushroom cloud of smoke formed behind the hills I can see from town. After a while smoke from Oregon blew in and the sky was orange colored and pretty dark all day! I could not get a good picture of the orange sky. It turned out normal color.There are fires in my state in 2021 but it is all far away this time. I still have not heard back from my paternal cousins. When we were moving fromCorpus Christi to California I remember we got stuck behind a super smelly garbage truck the whole time on I410 in San Antonio. The thing smelled so bad you could still smell it from 500 feet away! It reeked like banana peels. It is summer so there is smoke in the air. This time it is from 800 miles away. There are no fires near me. This last winter was the coldest I have seen in California. In fact it got cold in mid October and did not get really hot again until June. Oh and here we go again. The virus is surging in my county. I am not that worried since a lot of people are vaccinated where I live. Check my whatsnew page for eight photos of 85 south that show the SCU fire damage.


This is taken out of a side window in my house on 10/1/2020 of a sunrise with the smoke. The smoke was bad outside this day. Also my window screens are insulated so you are seeing smoke and a thick window screen here.

This is from February 2019. It was cold that week and it snowed in the mountains. The mountains just past the farthest ridgeline in this photo burned in the summer of 2020. The fire went off for 30 miles behind the hills in the distance in the summer of 2020.

This is taken on 1/17/2020. This was just before the lockdown. The mountains shown here are 3000' tall. Just seven months later and they were threated by the SCU fire. There are big fire lines up on this ridge now. Also the ridge behind it was the closest the fires got to my neighborhood.

snow in 2020


I went back to my old neighborhood on 6/27/2021. I had not been back there in over ten years. This shows the mountains above Milpitas and North San Jose. About 30% of the trees in the Mount Hamilton range have died since last summer. This is taken on More Avenue northbound in Los Gatos. This is taken via a zoom lens. The mountains are by Felter Road in the distance.
