Hidden North Bay

An off-the-beaten celebration

Our second biggest issue of the year, Arcadia celebrates the bucolic pastoral landscape, both imagined and real, of the North Bay. For this year's effort, we sought to highlight the "hidden" aspects of Sonoma, Marin and Napa counties. To that end, we brought model Ashley Allred, photographer Sara Sanger and intrepid photo assistant Josh Staples to Napa's fabulous funk art wallop the di Rosa Preserve to shoot the images that grace these pages. Follow Ashley as she goes on a journey through the Preserve, traveling along yourself through areas of North Bay food, wine and locales of which you may have been unaware.
