At home in the Rogue Valley. A naked pear orchard under a low ceiling. Frozen fog will be the rule for the next few months.
Climbing I-5 south of Ashland, up to the Siskiyou summit. At least it's not sn*wing!
Over the top and Welcome to Sunny California!
I can feel my spirit soaring over the landscape.
A little farther south and Mount Shasta leaps out to startle as you round a bend.
The Sacramento Valley: the orchards are as bare as at home. But there is the SUN and the sky is alive with impressionistic cloud patterns.
Settled in for the night in Dunnigan. A spectacular end to the first day.
