Wonderful trip to Mendocino last week to visit my friend Susan Maeder for some girl time, walks at Big River, inspirational conversation, lots of laughs and even some yoga. The weather was remarkable and provided spectacular views the entire time. Here is what Shasta looked like on the drive down. The most majestic I've ever seen it. Covered in snow, unobscured and the light just right.
Then on to Mendocino where the weather was also glorious. Perfect. Interpreted through the Hipstamatic photos below to show the true brilliance of the day.

And then after three wonderful days, an unbelievably beautiful drive home along the coast and up Highway 101. The Northern California coast is truly breathtaking on a clear, crisp day.

And now back home, I feel reinvigorated and inspired. Ready to dive back into creating art and reading, reading, reading!
