Last weekend at the Soul Food Farm Vintage and Antique Marketplace I had the privilege of meeting the good folk from Girl on the Hill, a lavender farm and vineyard at the top (eastern slope) of Mt Vaca. After sharing with them some photos I took at the Marketplace event, of their lavender, products, bees, etc., Girl on the Hill (Denise) asked Boy on the Hill if I could come up one morning to take photos of the sunrise.
So I got upat 4:45am this morning and arrived at this beautiful location at 5:30am. What a staggering view. Just gorgeous. It was so peaceful and one feels like they’re on top of the world, overlooking the Sacramento Valley to the Sierra Nevada, with so much of the valley laid out before them. From Vacaville, Fairfield, Suisun, Davis, Sacramento, all the way north to the Sutter Buttes. It’s really breathtaking…and then the sun starts to rise…and colors change…and it’s a wonderland.
