Felton is a beautiful place to those who love it. 5 miles north of Santa Cruz, it’s an entirely different scene. Home to big trees, sunny skies, and solid people; I get to visit Felton at least once a week for business and I always think how lucky I am. This time of year everything is parched and exhausted from the season’s sun, ready for rain and rest. This gives the mountains a rugged beauty, coated in dust and cracked with wear.
