Best View of the County That's Not In the Canyons (2013)

Cannon Street and Via Escola

As Cannon Street turns into Imperial Highway at the intersection of Via Escola in Anaheim Hills, your Orange County life is suddenly transformed. Around sunset, as you descend, the valley appears through the trees for a moment. The last remains of sun dust the hills in hazy gold, the streetlights begin to twinkle in the distance, and you can see for miles. But the moment comes and goes very quickly; soon, you're not allowed to drive 50 mph and you have to slow to half that, and then there's a stop sign and the road curves sharply to the left, and suddenly, no one else seems to realize it either, and when was the last time you checked your brakes? And shit! What were you doing not paying attention to the road for those 10 seconds of majesty?
