Highway 29, Calistoga to Middleton, California

This is off of Highway 29 heading from Alexander Valley Road, Calistoga to Middleton. This is one of the more curvy mountain roads, in northern California. At the top of the mountain is the Robert Lewis Stevenson State Park. Supposedly on a clear day from the peak you can see Mt. Shasta!

Robert Louis Stevenson State Park is the place where the famous author of Treasure Island and Kidnapped spent his honeymoon in 1880. Although nothing remains of Stevenson’s cabin, the site is identified on the trail to the summit.

Alexander Valley near Healdsburg, California.

This vineyard was off of some random road off of Alexander Valley Road, north of Healdsburg, CA. The back road to Calistoga, and Napa Valley. Truly the heart of wine country in my opinion. Some of the best and most beautiful vineyards and wineries in the world.

If you are in California and enjoy wine, you should not miss taking a drive through Sonoma County, especially in the spring.

You will see rolling hills of green, vineyard after vineyard, beautiful old trees, fresh water, spring flowers, and of course spacious blue skies!

Alexander Valley road connects Healdsburg, and Calistoga, in California.
A must see for wine enthusiasts!
