Santa Ynez River Valley, Solvang
Mission Santa Ines commands a great view towards Santa Ynez Mountains and Santa Ynez River Valley. The attached panorama photo was taken at sunset from the Mission parking lot surveying the Mission's farm land (click to enlarge).
Santa Ynez Mountains are not just beautiful but also suited for farming. Along my drive on #154 highway I saw rolling hills and local ranches.
