I'm in awe of being able to skip between mountains, redwoods, and coast so quickly. The landscape changes drastically here on a dime and I think that's been my favorite thing about the bay area so far. The hills are morphing from gold to green and I'm slowly starting to settle into Petaluma, CA. I'm always looking for trail recommendations... so shoot me a message if you have a favorite I'm missing out on. Keep reading to see where I've been rambling.

Left: Berkeley looking golden. Right: Meandering at Salt Point State Park looking for new trails.
Betsy came to visit and we walked in the tall trees at Armstrong Redwood State Park. We camped higher up the ridge and in the morning watched all of the deer strolling in the tall trees.
Left: Helen Putnam in the golden hour. Loving that this place is in my back yard. Right: Driving home on Highway 1. Somewhere near Jenner.
Left: One of my new favorite beaches, Goat Rock Beach. I love all of the colors and textures of the stones. Right: A boardwalk trail in Sonoma Coast State Park.
Morning clouds lying low over Armstrong Redwoods State Park. This golden landscape with layered mountains is bound to show up in future prints.
Exploring San Francisco markets. There is so much new to take in. Trying to move slow. Breathe deep. Take note of the good things.
