Taken on the Western States Trail (or whatever this trail is, you know, it's the one in Auburn, near the Confluence, at the top of Training Hill on the way to Cool.) This was during a nice break in the (much needed) January rains that have been soaking Norcal. (Here is more of the Central Valley and Sierra foothills in all four seasons.)
Top is January, middle is April, bottom is October.
Solvitur ambulando! Note the thick brow-ridge, the idiotic grin, and the death-grip on the beverage. You can email this handsome devil at email@example.com.
