7 This year's Holiday Magazine cover was inspired by the gi s given to us by the place we call home – Tu- lare County – which wraps our residents in boun ful rewards. The presents in the photo- graph are wrapped with the map of our county and specifically bring our a en on to the beauty above us to the East. The giant sequoias trees serve as a hall- mark of our epic land and towering peaks as the backdrop of our revered landscape. The snow capped peaks of Christmas provide the sun shone snowmelt of spring sustaining some of the most fer le fields in the world. Let this publica on be your road map to the people, places and presents of Tulare County and ex- plore the gi basket the world's bread basket provides.
