Morgan Hill and Oroville Itinerary (4 Days)

This was my introductory trip to Northern California while also including some waterfalls around the Bay Area that we hadn't visited before. Given the circumstances that Julie and Tahia were unable to go with me on this trip due to health reasons, my Mom joined me so we were able to be a little more ambitious in terms of what we wanted to accomplish in this extended weekend trip. This trip can be split into two parts - the Bay Area portion and the Gold Country portion. In the Bay Area portion, we did a couple of excursions within a half-day trip from Silicon Valley. We were also able to visit the famed wine country of Sonoma (with Napa Valley just next door), where we were able to visit a rare waterfall in this notoriously warm and dry region, and we were even able to make a quick jaunt into the coastal redwood forests within Marin County. As for the Gold Country part of the trip (essentially our introduction to Northern California north of Sacramento), I was finally able to tick Feather Falls off the bucket list while also visiting a couple of other waterfalls where the state's gold rush history was certainly evident.
