From Bountiful to Desolation

Today we drove from Tehachapi to San Francisco. As we left the hills behind us, we discovered the sweetest little farmer’s market! We stopped, found some great opportunities for photography, tasted some amazing fruit and ran the corn maze!

These are called “Budda’s fingers.”

After leaving this sweet spot, we drove through California’s “bread basket.”  What a heart breaking sight it is!  To think that all this destruction is supposedly about saving a 2 inch fish. (We are curious to know what the real reason is!)  How about saving the people who are going to go hungry if this is not rectified!  We turned on the radio while driving in an attempt to find some local talk radio discussion on the subject, but did not find any.  We did however hear several advertisements for the conservative who is running for governor.  She sounds like the right type of person to change the situation in CA.
