Photoblog - Driving through California. Oakdale/knights Ferry/Dentville

Traveling through Oakdale California, I took this picture in the area once called Dentville and Knights Ferry.  There is even a wooden covered bridge that some say was designed by U.S. Grant who was a brother-in-law of the Dent Brothers.

Now it is an amazing drive through a rolling chaparral meadow that sometimes breaks to a dry plain with rock outcroppings. That is seem through most of the foot hills throughout California.

Knights Ferry

When I drive, I like to think about what it would have been like crossing this mass open spaces in the wild west...  On a horse, in a wagon, on foot...  

Knights Ferry

So I try to take pictures to remind me of the great trips, so I can always come back to the posts and remember!
