Sonoma road show

I always enjoy the trip over to the coast, and I especially like sharing driving duties with the Big Guy; we’ve both agreed that I’m more patient in dealing with freeway frustrations. For years I avoided any driving on roads with a lot of twists and turns, especially along the coast — but these days I’m getting more comfortable in those situations as well. The only real downside to this is that I have fewer chances to shoot pictures out the window. That’s why a lot of my images from Sonoma County tend to show the same scenes over and over; I’m still quite happy to let the Big Guy handle the stretch of Highway 1 between Bodega Bay and Fort Ross, where the winding road climbs steeply up to Myers Grade Road in switchbacks and breathtaking drop-offs, often with no guardrails on the shoulder. These photos are all from our most recent trip in late September 2022.
