Some back roads in Northern California



Northern California is now GREEN and we will be able to enjoy this for about 3 months before the hills turn brown in late May early June.


This past weekend my husband and I drove up to the Sacramento area to visit our daughter and her husband. The drive up was stressful with traffic and just the rush through San Francisco. On our way back home to the Bay Area Saturday we took some back roads and it was the most relaxing and photogenic trip. I took over 80 pictures during this 2,5 hr trip and most through the wind shield of our pick up truck with bird poop and bug guts smeared across the window.

Wish I could live out there....away from all the Bay Area stress...and just paint all day. I will try to take the back roads when driving home from visiting my daughter as often as I can from now on.

It's so nice to see some green. In Michigan, it's still very brown.

Hi Jeanette, thanks for visiting my blog. Your name is familiar to me. Love the pictures - what beautiful views.

I noticed you are an art teacher. My daughter (17) is in the process of deciding what to do after school and what colleges to consider. She is very artistic and loves kids. An art teacher was a thought. She likes younger kids. How do you like it??

Oh,love the papers you did with your class - great idea.

Blessings,
Mary

I love being an Art teacher!!! Tell your daughter to get her teaching credentials and pick a college that offers solid art programs. With a love for kids and ART she can do so many things... teach art, start a local art program for kids, teach special needs kids (art is so important for these kids)... the list is long. Tell her good luck and to contact me if she has any ?s. Take care
