When most people hear California, images of bland suburban strip malls, jammed freeways, hot sandy beaches, Hollywood, and Palm Trees come to mind.
But there is more than just that. There is the forgotten Central (San Joaquin) Valley, which is more fitting of being somewhere in the Midwest than in CA.
Here are some pictures I took over the weekend. They are basically of "nothing" out in the country.
Considering that I live in an endless sea of suburban strip malls, concrete and asphalt, crowds, and traffic, seeing these places was a sort of tonic for the nerves, mind, and soul.
