santa rosa, ca: largest city in sonoma wine country/north bay (sf bay area): 300 pix!
 
some background:

santa rosa is the county seat of sonoma county in ca. as of jan 1, 07, the population was 157,985, making it the largest city in california's wine country and 5th largest in the bay area after san jose, san francisco, oakland and fremont.

more than 7.4 million visit the county as tourists each year.

not having to work - i grabbed my camera and my water bottle, and off i went to document my hometown as best as i could.

so yea, all photos are mine, and all were taken 03.04.08. theres actually a little less than 300, but there were over 400 originally.

I'm overwhelmed! Thanks for the tour and taking time to add so many photos in one post! What an interesting mixture of architectural styles. :)

BTinSF Mar 5, 2008 5:49 PM

It's so very . . . wine country.:cool:

Seriously, I can't even imagine how much work it was to upload all those. Thanks for doing it.

peanut gallery Mar 5, 2008 7:07 PM

Talk about leaving no stone unturned! It must have taken hours to put this together. Thanks for the effort.

I've wanted to visit the Luther Burbank Gardens since I saw Huell Howser do a show on it some time ago. Has it been updated? I seem to remember it looking more rustic.

stepper77 Mar 5, 2008 10:16 PM

What a great tour! I still have never made it to Santa Rosa, but, I knew a bunch of people who moved there for junior college. Downtown looks great and it's nice other neighborhoods as well.

northbay Mar 5, 2008 10:49 PM

thanks for the comments guys!

honestly, i hardly ever go to the gardens. the brochure says that a revitalization project was completed in 1992, featuring more "burbank-related plant material" and making structural repairs.

since were on this topic, let me include my favorite burbank quote (made when he first arrived in santa rosa in 1875):

Quote:

"i firmly believe, from what i have seen, that this is the chosen spot of all this earth as far as Nature is concerned."

Wow. I'm surprised I was able to view this thread. Usually photo threads this large freeze up my computer... but I think the picture size made it possible to not overload my computer and freeze it up.

Santa Rosa definitely looks like a nice area. I'd love to head there from some wine tasting. Thanks for the great photo tour! :)

Downtown Dave Mar 6, 2008 1:56 AM

Nice views of what looks like a nice place. Thanks! :)

sf_eddo Mar 19, 2008 7:20 PM

Santa Rosa looks so Colonial!

UCityGardener Mar 19, 2008 8:05 PM

It never ceases to amaze me how ugly California is. :jester:

Seriously, Santa Rosa is a beautiful place and it looks like you had a beautiful day to take those pics. I love the Charles Shulz statue and museum there.

BnaBreaker Mar 19, 2008 8:53 PM

Thanks for the tour! I've never seen Santa Rosa before. It looks like a very pleasant little city.

Buckeye Native 001 Mar 19, 2008 10:17 PM

Falcon Crest! ;) :tup:

sf_eddo Mar 21, 2008 10:29 AM

I'd also like to point out - Santa Rosa is also a relatively important regional transit hub, with four systems (Golden Gate Transit, Santa Rosa CityBus, Sonoma County Transit, VINE) meeting at their transit center, as well as various Airporters and shuttles.

northbay Mar 22, 2008 8:41 PM

^ thats right, sf_eddo. theres also santa rosa airport with commercial service to seattle, portland, la and las vegas (some of those flights wont start til april)

POLA Mar 22, 2008 9:59 PM

Cool shots. Thanks for sharing. I want to visit the burbank home; how easy is it to take public transit from the city to there? or should i just rent a car?

edluva Mar 22, 2008 10:39 PM

one of the things i love about norcal is the random conifers scattered about the landscape which you just don't see here in LA

boden Mar 23, 2008 12:00 AM

Enjoyed your post....good work!

Lovely city... I'd like to visit that part of the state sometime...
