“All of my work these days, which I call ‘Trail Paintings’ are done on the road and are directly inspired by the mountain poetry that floods over me when I am exploring the American West. Being a wilderness perfumer with Juniper Ridge, I am preoccupied with the romantic nature of the rugged wildlands of California and so therefore i incorporate visionary motifs into my simple, spontaneous drawings, that reflect the inspiration I feel.”

That’s Junipero Serra Peak on the Horizon. The native Salinans call it Pimkolam. It is the highest peak in California’s coastal range and one of my true loves.
