the central valley.

yesterday we took the train from san francisco to san luis obispo. it was stunningly beautiful. the central valley is extraordinarily picturesque from the train perspective. picture. postcard. perfect.

it makes me proud to be a central valley girl.

Beautiful! (As long as you're viewing from air-conditioned comfort.) Hooray for SJ Valley Girls.

true, but i love the dry feels almost medicinal. it's the humidity that kills me to the core !

The valley IS so beautiful. Those yellow hills and that blue of the sky, one of my very favorite landscapes.
The central valley gets called a lot of names(armpit of California, etc.) but i'm still proud to be from there, and happy to hear you are proud too!
Here's to central valley girls!

I love taking the train, but didn't realize there was one from S.F. to SLO. What a perfect little getaway.

P.S. Love your blog + line of wares
