The Sacramento Delta

I started this project because of my interest in the small colorful town of Locke, which was established near the banks of the Sacramento River in the late 1800s. Locke was originally home to migrant Chinese who worked on the Pacific railway. Later, around the turn of the century, the same Locke residents helped build the levees which distributed water from the Sacramento River to nearby agricultural land. After a while, I found the nearby towns of Isleton, Walnut Grove, and surrounding areas just as interesting. All of the images in this gallery were taken within a half-mile of the Sacramento River. This project is not complete; I plan to add more images to this gallery in the spring.
