Livermore Valley

I headed out to Livermore today to soak up some warm sunshine and enjoy what Livermore is known for: daffodils, history, and vineyards. Livermore was founded in 1869 and is California's oldest wine region. It is also home to the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as well as many farms, ranches, and commercial endeavors. Come take a look at the colorful scenes I encountered this afternoon...

Daffodil Hill...









Ravenswood Historic Site...



























Deer Ridge Vineyards...













Livermore has many more scenic locales to offer and is a fun afternoon getaway from the East Bay.

Unbelievably magnificent. Each photo is a masterpiece! I feel like I am seeing it in person for myself. You truly have a gift!

My first visit to your blog. I love daffodils and picked a bunch up from Trader Joes last week that are now fully open. Since we live in Sacramento County, Livermore would be an easy day trip to take. Is this area open to the public without cost? Looks like a wonderful place to visit this time of the year.
