Pierce, I was just (sorta) kidding - there's parts of California that has seasons, right? There's something to be said for each season - the blooming flowers of spring, the colorful leaves of fall, etc. Pick whatever you like. Maybe you could even do a "4-seasons" layout, with the season changing from one area to the next!

Pierce,
My impression of fall in the SF area - particulalry east towards Berkley, Walnut Creek, and Napa is that it is really quite beautiful. In many respects, it lacks the vibrant colors of the Northeast. However, you do see a gradual turning of the hillsides from green to the tans of the dried grasses. Done well on a layout, I'm sure the tan rolling hills would look great!

Good luck.

Dan
