North end of Sacramento Valley
I hail from northern California-between Red Bluff and Redding and just south of the town of Cottonwood. This is at the northern end of California's Great Central Valley.
Winters here are cool and usually wet. Summers are dry and brutally hot. We have little legitimate Fall and Spring seasons. Photo above is looking southeast from our home over a fog shrouded sunrise atop the valley. Tuscan Buttes and Southern Cascades above foggy sunrise.
