These photos were made during June 2011 in the Central Coast region of California. The Central Coast spans nearly five hundred miles of the Pacific shore from the Los Angeles area to the San Francisco Bay Area.

This John Deere tractor adorns the exterior of Casa de Fruita, a farmer’s market on Route 152 between Los Banos and Gilroy.

I stumbled upon the tractors at the bottom while on a hike through the Wilder Ranch on the edge of Santa Cruz with my daughter Megan.
