This Winter we have above average rainfall totals in Northern California, but below average for the months of January and February. Things are cooking right along at Juniper Ridge, with the launch of Winter Redwood – I am running the @juniper_ridge twitter feed now – mostly wilderness conservation posts. Alli & I plan on heading up to Mount Diablo to hunt the first wildflowers this weekend – below are some shots from that sweet place and some pics from the past few weeks, including a lone tree I am particularly fond of on the Matt Davis Trail over on Mount Tam. My mornings are spent with coffee in the studio painting Athena. To see my paintings go to obikaufmann.com
