The adventures of February

Trail around Trinidad Head in late afternoon
It took a while, but the rains of winter have finally returned to Northern California.  We are still firmly established in a drought, but at least February has been wet.  In between storms (and sometimes in them), we have continued to explore our local trails.  It's been a beautiful month with the first leaves of spring arriving along with flowering trees and green grass.  Here are a few photos of this month's adventures...
