Fresno: It’s a beautiful Valleyavatar

with one comment

I felt like I was paid to drive the Valley’s Blossom Trail yesterday!

A little after noon on Tuesday, I drove from Fresno to Selma, where I picked up Vida photographer Daniel Cásarez. Then we drove to Corcoran, to interview students on the school’s Academic Decathlon team, and then to Dinuba, to interview a Latino business owner. (Both of those stories can be found in next week’s edition of Vida.)

My trusty GPS took us on rural roads on the way to Corcoran, and I had the chance to see the fruit and nut trees that are now studded with beautiful pink and white flowers. Later, as we left Corcoran, I told Dan that I was stunned by the beauty of seemingly endless rows of flowering fruit and nut trees, set against an expansive, cloudy sky. He said he was a Valley boy, and had seen this landscape all his life – but for me, a former city girl, it was a view that struck me.

As I drove home from Dinuba, I caught a glimpse of this rainbow over the Selma vineyards. I pulled over onto the side of the road, and tried to save the moment on my camera phone.rainbow1

As I posted on Twitter last night: “I’m constantly amazed by the beauty of the Valley!”

  1. Is there any way you can share more photos from the Valley? I’ve visited once (I’m from the East Coast) and was very surprised at how beautiful the place was, in a rather unconventional way, but beautiful nonetheless.

    I enjoy this blog. Thanks!
