I have divided Northern California into seven regions, totaling more than 1500 panoramas: To begin, click one of the regions listed here, or click on the map, or scroll down to see a detailed list of localities within each region.

Northern California is famous for its redwood forests, fine wines, Victorian towns, the rugged coast, towering volcanoes, two national parks and a national seashore, famous ski resorts, Lake Tahoe, Sacramento the state capital, and the Mother Lode gold country. As defined here it runs north from the Golden Gate, the delta, and the Tuolumne River on the north side of Yosemite. (The city of San Francisco, the San Joaquin delta, and Yosemite belong to Central California).

This "state" of Northern California, as I have defined it, begins within sight of where I Iive, and contains some of my favorite places. I travel throughout this region year-around - day trips to Marin, weekends on the Sonoma/Mendocino coast, and longer trips to the redwoods and Klamath-Cascade mountains. I often pass through the Gold Country on my way to the higher mountains, but in 2012 made a special effort to document this important slice of California's history and geography.
