Redlands & Riverside Region Photos

East of Los Angeles sit two towns Redlands & Riverside which made their fortunes by shipping citrus fruit to the east coast after the railroads made such transport possible in the 1880s. The area became known as the Orange Empire. The area is the gateway east sitting below the Cajon pass which leads to Barstow, Palm Springs and Las Vegas.
