What isn't there to enjoy about views like this?

The Sacramento River meanders along levees and farmland of the southern Sacramento Valley as farmers grow rice, vegetables and orchard crops under a bright, blue sky.

Nearby the Sutter Buttes -- the world's smallest mountain range -- provide a scenic backdrop as they rise above the valley floor.

Here are a few scenes from Benden Farms, a diversified farming operation on the east side of the Sacramento River in Colusa County, Calif.
