2012 Spring is here.
I once again began exploring the winding, back roads and towns of Lincoln, Loomis, Newcastle, Penryn, and Auburn in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California. I'm intrigued by the old farms, livestock, rolling hills, streams, and creeks. There is an abundance of California Valley Oaks decorating the landscape, also dotted by large, lichen and moss covered granite rocks and boulders that are typical of the area. Check out the picture here of a rusting 1920's pickup truck on Chili Hill Road, and see other scenes in my website gallery of the Sierra Foothills at Outdoorscenics.com.
