The Sacramento Tower Bridge, a vertical lift bridge opened in 1935, I'm not a big fan, but many think it is picturesque, to get there, just drive down Capital Avenue in downtown Sacramento, if you're in the area, it is hard to miss. More pictures here.

This giant sequoia is smack in the middle of the Mariposa Grove Parking lot in Yosemite National Park. From the parking lot you can hike up and see more giant sequoias, ride an open "tram" around the trees for $25 a person, or shrug it off as one big tree looks pretty similar to another big trees and go on your way. I don't particularly suggest the tram (a cart pulled by a tractor) unless you have a high tolerance for diesel fumes, but walking the whole trail is a little much unless you have a lot of time to spend in Yosemite. For my money, walk a bit on the grove trail from the parkinglot, then turn around when you're nearly bored. Laura has more.

A picture of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park on an annoyingly foggy day. You know it is not a good day for pictures when the gate ranger suggests you go take in a movie. The roads were already starting to close this weekend, hopefully they plow them out and reopen soon. Check out the Yosemite blog for more information.
