These photographs were taken at Mount Tamalpais, home to shaded old growth Redwood forests and Douglas fir-covered slopes near Alpine Lake. In the light gaps beneath the redwood trees are red alders, California big leaf maples, tanoaks, and Douglas fir. The forest floor is covered in redwood sorrel, ferns, fungi, lichen, duff and debris. The forest was quiet, with only the sound of crunching leaves beneath my feet. Perhaps reminiscent of my summers spent in Occidental, California, I feel most at peace here. Luckily, this woodland is only a short 45 minute drive from my front doorstep.

This is one of the coolest capes I have ever seen! The awesome scenery doesn't hurt either...

stunning! That cape fits in perfectly too!

The Thriftaholic (Leilani) :

I've been enjoying the nature/woods theme of the posts this week-- of course the setting is stunning but I'm also in awe of the outfit you wore for exploring. You're definitely wearing the most unique and gorgeous cape I've seen and the green dress coordinates perfectly with your surroundings.

Also in reference to my CA trip... was hoping to come next month but the trip has sadly been pushed back to late March/early April. Will keep you posted!

Monique :
