Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 207: Sunset in the California Desert

Three of my CPCA colleagues and I are in the midst of a two-day road trip to visit four health center organizations and some of their sites in the Central Coast area -- Nipomo, Watsonville, Hollister, and Gilroy.  Today we were in Nipomo, which is farthest from Sacramento, and we drove north to Salinas to spend the night so that our morning appointment tomorrow isn't too far away.

Much of the area between cities and towns along Highway 101 is full of desert landscape, and we saw a beautiful sunset over the mountains this evening, with intense orange and fuschia colours staining the clouds.

I wasn't able to take any photos of the actual sunset, but these images give a pretty good sense of the hue and intensity that we witnessed:
