This day in Russian Ridge had the sky of summer, but the mood of spring. As the rains of winter give way to sunny skies, the moist soil of the Santa Cruz Mountains is poised for a takeover. The tall dry grass is finally pushed out by this year's new flock. For a few fleeting months, these gentle hillsides are a lush wonderland but in no time at all, this grass too will grow tall and brown. The cyclicality of these mountains is beautiful and mesmerizing, even on a year-long timescale. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

This is a good image Matt.
It captures two things rather well I think, the character of the landscape and your lovingly intimate ability to capture it.

Except that all that rain came in December; and rainfall has now dropped below average, for yet another season.

Hopefully the coastal fog will bring some regular precipitation.

Indeed, twas definitely a front-loaded year.  Even worse for the sierras unfortunately...enough rain on the peninsula for a normal spring, but come summer when we're relying on snow melt... well lets just say there are going to be plenty of restrictions this year
