    The only person in Sacrotomato is the Govenator and his ceegars. Nobody else in their right mind would live there... too wet in the winter, to damned hot in the summer.

    Usually highs of 85 or so, breeze blowing off the bay...

    Ya always know how hot it is by observing when the fog burns off in the morning.

    San Jose is NICE. Boring weather... but NICE.

    Allright that makes 2 people in the sacramento area!

    Sacramento does have hot summers, and they are especially unfriendly to photographers.. cloudless skys for 3-4 months straight, and contrast-reducing smog/haze. I allways look east and see huge banks of clouds over the sierra nevadas, but im unsure how far away they are. If they are in the nearby foothills or more torward the peaks of tahoe. Either way, i wish i spent my summers there.

    However winters are quite enjoyable. It's not nearly as wet as Oregon and Washington. Its only cold for 2 months... december and january.

    Sacramento has quite a bit of historical sites. And while it does not have the granduer of other places, it is diving distance to San Francisco, redwoods, Big Sur, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Mt. Shasta, ghost towns (Bodie!), Santa Cruz, Monterey, Malkoff Diggings, Death Valley, Mono Lake, Alcatraz, Point Reyes, and the list goes on..

    Darin, I'm the guy who got your enlarger. (thanks, btw, it's working out great!)

    I'm in Roseville, though right now I'm in Pennsylvania for a while. I'll be back in the fall.

    I've always said that the great thing about Sacramento is that it's two hours from everywhere. The bad thing is that it's two hours from anywhere.

    I grew up in Fair Oaks and have family in Carmichael, so I do visit often. I ended up moving to San Francisco to get away from the heat! Actually, I was in Sacramento on Sunday.

    You should all come to Marin. Perfect weather and a nice view of the fog.

    It's a shame it's so freaking expensive...

    I love the california coast, especially marin, dillons beach, bodega bay, monterey, big sur, and cambrian. I havent been north of bodega bay though. I understand ft. bragg and eureka are great places too.

    There are plenty of photographers of all types in the Sacramento area. If you have not done so, check out Viewpoint Photographic Art Center at viewpointgallery.org. A fine, not for profit, organization with plenty of "traditional" photographers, a gallery, and a slew of field trips and workshops.

    Hi, I have been a viewpoint member for a few months and I'm impressed by how organized and active the membership is.

    They are a long way to go to be nowhere. *L*.

    We are going to Sea Ranch for a week. Time to recharge the batteries. There are some nice spots to photograph, but not like Big Sur. It's a pretty mellow place, the area above Bodega Bay. You might like the Russian River area. Lots of history there.

    How's Sacra-tomato today? Hot as Hades from what I hear.

    I'm in Sacramento

    I like it about 50% of the time. The traffic is getting out of control. It's too spread out and public transportation sucks, so everyone drives, alone. If it's too hot I usually go to the bay area.
