Ever hear the old saying that life's about the journey, not a destination? Out here in Northern California, we tend to take it a step further: Here, sometimes the journey is the destination. Transit time in our lovely region isn't just a way of getting from Point A to Point B – it's an eye-opener in and of itself. Just ask anyone who's ever taken a bicycle tour, big or small, around our neck of the woods!
Sometimes the old ways are still the best ways. Even with hybrid cars growing in popularity among drivers, there's still no real alternative to the power of your own two feet, to get you where you're going without leaving a significant ecological footprint. Besides, hiking and biking are both healthy and fun, and ensure you get a chance to "stop and smell the roses" along the way.
