There is a river, sort of, sometimes. There are also several lakes, more some times than others. The land is pretty flat, except where there are hills, and there are few trees, except where they grow.

Hmmm. If he had said the "Land of Empty Promises", I'd wonder why in the world he wanted to live in DC.

It appears we have a winner...
And maybe a correct answer, too...
I took the photo below about 3 weeks ago while I was there. Most of y'all didn't even notice I was gone, I had Sophie working in the mod shack in my place. Since I heard no complaints, I guess she did all right.

Well, the Salinas Valley is flat as is the central valley, but there are many high mountains in California, including the highest in the Continental US.

Now, to lead everybody through the clues I left...
The Promised Land, both from the Elvis song, and the Steinbeck novel. Also, in the movie "Men In Black", there is a brief reference to Elvis "going home", while the song "Promised land" is playing. The song also directly references the area we are moving to.
There are several rivers, but they only have water during rainy season (whenever that is--it has never rained in California any time I've been there).
The same for the lakes, both natural and man-made.
There are trees, but most of them are in the higher elevations.

Sorry, it was meant to be fun for the people guessing.
