  • Vistas from California’s ‘Devil Mountain’

    Several Springs ago, we had driven to the top of Mt. Hamilton and seen Santa Clara Valley from a height of 4,200 odd feet. Then last Fall, in what was like a follow-up trip, we drove up the same range, this time to the top of Hamilton’s little brother...

    One day we when we were totally at loose ends, we decided to pay Stockton a visit. We’d never been to Stockton, CA; only heard of it. Stockton is the headquarters of San Joaquin County, which is one of the 58 counties of California. This city that is built on...

    Over the weekend, we visited Yosemite National Park in California. While we were there, we walked up the 0.5 mile trail to see the Bridal Veil Falls, one of the POIs of this National Park. At this time of the year, the falls in Yosemite are not known to...
