On To Arizona through the California Central Valley
From Washington and Oregon, we drove through California's Central Valley stopping in Sacremento, the state capital, for a few days, and on through Yosemite, Kings' Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks, through the orange groves in San Joaquin Valley to Kingman and Flagstaff, Arizona. It was a lot of territory in a short time, but all very pretty and worth a revisit. Some of the highlights are below, except for the heavenly scent of the orange blossoms in the air, which could not be photographed.
