As a school bus mechanic and sometimes driver, my "office" is sometimes mobile. The area where I work has a remarkable biodiversity as far as plants are concerned. Pines and Oaks along with Eucalyptus growing together across the street from an orange grove with cactus thrown in for good measure. Palm trees flourish here too. A pretty good batch of Avocados too but many are being stumped as water has gotten too expensive.Fairly rugged hilly and mountain terrain with considerable elevation changes throughout. This is looking west down the San Luis Rey river valley this morning.  Palomar mountain forms the south side of the valley and is slightly east of where this was taken. E.

Never been in those mountains, even when I lived in southern California. Nice!

That IS nice, Erik; I often envy some of the scenery other members here see regularly.

Definitely a nice area. Years (70s) ago on a motorcycle ride up Palomar Mountain Rd. I was schooled on decreasing radius corners by an old guy on an old BMW. It was quite a lesson. Every time I see the name Palomar I remember that ride.

Looking for 6-56 and 6-58 Birthday lanterns.
There's been an alarming increase in the number of things I know nothing about.

Nice view.  What age are your passengers?  I would think that younger children are more fun to transport than older ones.

Whenever I think of the Palomar Mt.s, I think of this: https://www.singingwheels.com/the-hale-telescope---a-specialized-haulage-job.html

Well, not that exact article, but... "The Most Valuable Cargo Ever Moved!" At the time, anyhow....
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

@Gunhippie that's a pretty neat link to a little bit of history.

Beautiful area with great diversity for plants, trees, cactus  etc... - Nice to see some wide open areas still exist- Too much concrete and steel  these days

Looking for any Lantern dated "10-89" (B/D lantern for my Son)

We do the whole age group from pre K up through High School. I much prefer and enjoy the High school group. They can be a lot of fun. Palomar observatory has a neat visitor center that is always interesting. There is a lot of interesting history here, movie stars, Nate Harrison, Betty Crocker and Jennie Wimmer. Mrs. Wimmer was at Sutters Mill and assayed the gold found there starting the CA gold rush. Truly an interesting place but I find that almost anywhere you go there is an interesting story behind it.

I believe the RR transport of the mirror from Corning to Chicago was over the Erie RR.  The Erie went through Corning and was originally a six-foot gauge RR and thus when it was moved to standard gauge it was left with wide clearances and this fact was used in its freight advertising.  More trivia, 🙂
DougA  ... fettler and keeper of a family collection of nickel: a 249, a pair of 237s, and a 1938 228B, along with a late 1979 red 200a.  Then two more turned up, a 1941 243A and a 1944 242C, and now there's a b-day 200A lantern, too!.

That was the mirror blank. It then spent 13 years being polished at CalTech, removing something like 10 tons of glass! Final polishing was done with a thumb coated with cerium oxide!
