After many trips by these beautiful sunflower fields I decided to stop and take some pictures. They are beautiful and there are several fields in northern California. Sunflowers produce sunflower seeds and sunflower seed oil.
Swimming at Helena is absolutely delightful! The water is pleasantly cool and refreshing. It is very deep in parts and people enjoy jumping off the rocks and the infamous rope swing which every rural area seems to have. There are small rapids that the children and adults alike enjoy floating and swimming in.
Lake Tahoe, is gorgeous, at any time of the day. Sunsets near Lake Tahoe are even more gorgeous! California has beautiful sunsets, but up in Tahoe, they are particularly magnificent. This sunset was at Rustic Cottages on Lake Tahoe, in Tahoe Vista. They have a beautiful meadow behinds some of the cabins and houses, and the sunset was gorgeous there. Rustic Cottages is a great place to vacation, especially with family!
