Livin' in the Country

A Celebration Of Country Life In The Hills Of California

Oak on Hillside

California. Synonymous with flash, glitz, drama. Larger-than-life. Be it the tinsel and glitter of Hollywood, the boiling pace of Silicon Valley, the soaring peaks of the Sierra or the crashing waves along the Big Sur coast, the popular conception of California has an air of unreality about it.

But there's another California that belies the popular images. Away from the crowds, where the pace is slower.

Come on in and see what it's like to live away from the big cities.
