I’ve posted about Northern California many times before. It has been my home for the past ten years, and I absolutely love it. I haven’t gone to Southern California since moving here because there is just so much to do in the northern half of the state. In fact, I’ve barely scratched the surface. My numerous trips to places such as Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, the Bay Area, Point Reyes, Bodega Bay, Napa Valley, Sonoma County, the Gold Country, and Yosemite National Park have given me just a taste of the beauty and diversity that you can see in these images of Northern California:

I love the hills of Northern California. This is south of Lodi in the central valley.

It’s fun to watch the vineyards and grapes change through the year. This is what they look like in the summer.
