California's Picturesque Bay Area - Just One of Sam's Exotic Travels

If you want to pack in the most diverse scenery and culture in the shortest time, you should put the Bay Area on your short list.  Within ninety minutes of San Francisco you can head south past the Santa Cruz mountains to picturesque Monterey and Carmel, or head north to Mirin County to Salsaulito and Fairfax or just enjoy the beauties of San Francisco itself.  There's so much worth seeing.  Hope these pictures lend some motivation.
