Beauty in the Wilderness

My mom was visiting (as she does about 5 or 6 times a year) and we wanted to take her on a small trip as she seldom gets a chance to do that. So we headed up to Santa Maria, spent one night in a motel and then drove out the Carrizo Plain National Monument, on the way to beautiful downtown Taft, due east from our coastal central valley area. It was just amazing. Enjoy these few photos of a lovely, lazy afternoon's drive through a little-known part of our great state.
