Travel to the mountains

This is the perfect time of year to take a road trip. The mountains here in southern California are blooming with flowers-making for a fantastic view along the way. Stop at a local roadside for some fare or pack a picnic lunch. A camera is suggested as many shots are waiting for your photo albums. Make sure to take in the wildlife making their way through the terrain. The Sierra Nevada mountains north of Los Angeles provide a wonderful way to see some interesting things that aren't in suburbia. Balloon rides, wine tasting and rodeos can be found in nearby mountain communities. So enjoy this weather and take your car for a spin.
