Photographer's Note

Here's a look at a typical vineyard in the Napa Valley at a time of year you may not normally get to see. The grapevines are still asleep - just about to wake up - in this image, but the mustard is in full bloom. It's not the most vivid time of year, but I think it's lovely in its own way.

There are only two roads that bisect the Napa Valley: Silverado Trail and Route 29. 29 continues south through Vallejo (which is the northern end of the San Fransisco Bay Area), and then goes all the way north through Napa Valley, ending in Upper Lake, Lake County. The entire Napa Valley is surrounded by mountains, and the region is probably smaller than you might think considering all the wine that comes from it.

This particular vineyard is in the Calistoga area off Silverado Trail. I cropped the image and sharpened it up a bit, but that's about it. In case you're wondering, all the larger wineries are open from 9am to 5pm year round :)
