Mt. Saint Helena (not to be confused with the more-famous eruptuous Mt. Saint Helens in Washington state) forms the northern border of Napa Valley, separating it geographically from Lake County to the north. The more laid-back atmosphere of the Clearlake area meets the haute couture of Napa at this mountain, which offers good views of both areas. The mountain is in Robert Louis Stevenson State Park.

about Branden Frederick

I am a photographer: I have fun taking photos, and I always have.

I've had a camera in my hand my whole life, a 110 camera as a kid, and the high school's 35mm SLR later. In 2008 I spent six months doing nothing but taking photos and loved it. From that point on I've had my camera surgically attached to my hand (I lie). I went digital in the year 2000, and I came back to film in 2013. My parents tell me my photos are "nice".
