'Sac-of-Tomatoes' in Spring

Back in April 2016, my mom traveled out here to California for one of her semi-annual visits.  She had never been to the State Capitol building before, so we decided to use one of the days that she was here to take a drive up to Sacramento.

I love capturing the beauty of the surrounding area, so I didn't mind taking her up to the 'City of Trees' for a day trip, although I have to say that the drive up there is really boring!  I only wish we could have had time to visit the Old Sacramento Historic District.  Anyway, here are some of the shots that I took:

Full view of the California State Capitol Building in Sacramento.

Capturing the phrasing.  I forget which building this is, officially, but it was located to the side of the main Capitol building.

Again, the phrasing.  This was on the other side from the previous photo's building.

Just walking around and capturing the view!

Of course, I couldn't leave out the flora!

More of the scenery, just outside the Capitol Building.

There were lots of cyclists visiting on the day we were there!

A curving pathway I liked.

Seal of the Senate.

The Great Seal of the State of California.

Another view of the pathway that I liked.

Couldn't resist that weeping willow in the park!

Looking down the street leading up to the building, taken from inside.

This was really neat, the guide was showing us an old photo of the desk that is seen in the background, in its glory days.  I love how this turned out.

Stay tuned for Alcatraz & Angel Island!
