Unique to Sonoma Country: Most Scenic Drives: I have three bests...
1) Coleman Valley Road from Occidental to the coast. (a few min. from our cottage) 2) Geyser’s Road. Take Alexander Valley Road to Old Winery Road to Geysers Road. It winds up to Geysers geothermal plant which you can see from the road. Steam rises out of the ground and some of the many pipes. The views are stunning and the chaparral terrain is unusual and dramatic. 3) West Dry Creek Road, from Healdsburg take Westside to West Dry Creek and go north. I like it in the fall when the vineyards and trees show their fall color. Great wineries along the way too.
Unique to Sonoma Country: Most impressive yet easily overlooked natural wonder: Armstrong Woods has many impressive trees including two over 300 feet tall.
