Grapes, Oil, Salad and Fruit Trees

We went from Mendocino county in Northern California to Castaic on the south side of the Grapevine in 3 days.

We grow grapes in Mendocino and Sonoma Counties.
This was taken just south of Cloverdale, CA. in Sonoma Co.

Flowering plum trees in bloom.  

These next pictures are of the beautiful Salinas Valley, the salad bowl of the western US.

I know this is blurry but you get the idea.  Here is lettuce growing.

Water is very important in the growing of our vegies.  California is in the grips of a drought.

Yes, there is oil in the Salinas Valley too.

And grapes.

After traveling along highway 101 for two days when we reached Paso Robles we took highway 46 east to Lost Hills which is on highway 5 in the Central Valley.  These pictures were taken along highway 46.

Blurry but still beautiful.

Oil in the central valley too.

Taft, CA. has built themselves a new race track.

Then it was up and over the mountains at the southern end of the central valley.  This section of highway 5 is known as The Grapevine.  We chugged along at a fast 40mph.

It snowed up here yesterday.

And when we turned into the driveway of the Castaic Lake RV Park and turned around and looked     back towards The Grapevine we saw this.  Ignore the power lines and only see the rainbow.

Tomorrow I will tell you about our trip from Castaic Lake area to San Diego.

Evie and Joy.
