Boonville, the biggest town in this small valley, has always been a place I wanted to visit. And fortunately I got to see much of Anderson Valley through this assignment. The intense drive up Hwy 128 is very much the same through Sonoma and Napa counties (minus the bicyclists); your eyes rarely leave the squiggly road. I fell in love with the redwood forest, the apple orchards, and an old roadhouse turned quaint hotel. I finally tasted the wheat beer at Anderson Valley Brewing Company and witnessed the convergence of redwoods and vineyards in one blink.
