Subject: Re: Northern California
There are places in northern california that I consider beautiful. Beach areas: Mendocino, Pt. Reyes, Inverness, Stinson Beach Inland: Lake Tahoe is beautiful also along with Yosemite. The northern part of Yosemite has less tourists and you can visit Mono Lake which is very strange looking because it is a salt water lake where birds migrate because of the brine shrimp and use the place for breeding.

In San Francisco area... Mill Valley is a great quaint town full of redwoods just north of SF in Marin County. The Sweetwater, in Mill Valley, is reknowned for its music. Many famous persons have played there. The acoustics are great and it is small ... Next door is a hot tub and massage place. There are also many galleries and boutiques in the town. has some info on traveling in California.
