California Valley was starting to bloom yellow when flew by a few days ago. Painted Rock is fascinating as usual, and Soda Lake has water. The hills along the San Andreas Fault combined blossoms with shadows and a soft cloud topping. Undulations in the valley floor wore a burst of colors amid iridescent blue haze. Across the mountains toward Santa Ynez Valley we wondered if anyone visits a grand sandstone rock formation.
