    In the map above, Fairfield is on the lower left, and Vacaville is on the upper right.  Travis Air Force Base can be seen in the lower right:  the runways stand out.  Our communities are adjacent to open space, such as the hills in the upper left, and the agricultural area in the upper right.  We are fortunate to live in an area with such natural beauty all around.
