There are some nice places (very beautiful) in the central valley but the problem is that there isn't a whole lot to do there unlike southern california where there are a ton of things to do.

My photos were taken in Turlock where I live. What would you like to know about the area?

Very beautiful, indeed.
How would a backwards commute from Dublin / Pleasanton to Turlock at 7:30 - 8 AM work? Is it congested going inland in the morning? What about in the afternoon / evening from Turlock back to Dublin / Pleasanton? Is there public transportation (from Tracy, for instance) that could take me there?

It is really, really bad going to the bay from inland but it's do-able with a reverse commute. I have a friend who does it. She is rarely stuck in traffic, but its still a long drive as far as daily stressors go. There is a bay area bus that runs twice a day to Modesto but I don't think it reaches Turlock. There was some discussion of extending the ACE train to Turlock, but that would require ballot initiatives supporting tax increases. You can read about the current debates here: Bid to extend ACE trains to Modesto, Turlock, Merced faces hurdles | The Modesto Bee

To stay on topic, I really like that photo of Lindsay - I looked it up because I had no idea where it was. So many little valley towns!

Suffice it to say it's the Central Valley between Fresno and Sacramento. I would tell you where it is exactly but folks like it the way it is. Really don't want a lot of people from Southern California or the Bay Area moving here. Why would we want what happened in those areas happen here? We like that folks from those areas think the Valley is ugly and boring.

There's basically 0 humidity. It's hot for sure (Low 100s), but it's dry, so it doesn't feel that hot. I can handle it much better at 104 in a dry area than I can at 92 in a wet one.

I would agree with that, and also add that I always feel the heat worse if there isn't a breeze. If its a windy, breezy day its a beautiful day in the CV no matter how hot it is.
