Spring in Fresno County, California, is a breathtakingly beautiful sight!
“FRESNO COUNTY, WHERE NATURAL BEAUTY MEETS RICH HERITAGE”
There is an exceptional amount of beauty in California’s Central Valley and the Fresno County region.
On the other hand, my only regret about my trip there is that I didn’t have my half-crop Canon or full-frame, mirrorless Sony A7 III with me.
But enough of that whining!
We go with what we have at the moment (a phone) and enjoy it!
GREEN is the word that comes to mind when I describe Fresno County.
It is the most beautiful sight I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend the area if you have the opportunity to visit. Spring in Fresno County is nearly surreal.
At this time, Fresno County is the Agricultural Capital of the World, producing 350 crops worth approximately $6.8 billion!
Imagine yourself in the core of California, where you can find vast agricultural bounties, endless sunshine, and breathtaking natural scenery.
With three National Parks nearby, Fresno County is a fun-filled destination. Bring your camera!
The original inhabitants of the San Joaquin Valley region were the Yokuts people and Miwok people. And the first European to enter the San Joaquin Valley was Pedro Fages in 1772.
Fresno County formed in 1856 after the California Gold Rush and named after the lush ash trees (Spanish: Fresno) lining the San Joaquin River.
Millerton became the county seat after becoming a settler focal point.
Unfortunately, in 1867, the San Joaquin River flooded, engulfing Millerton. Some residents rebuilt, others moved. Flooding also destroyed the town of Scottsburg on the nearby Kings River that winter.
