Yesterday I had some time to kill in Sebastopol, a town about 15 miles from Santa Rosa, so I packed some lunch and took Chloe along to see what we could find at Ragle Ranch Park. Because my usual haunts are oak, douglas fir and monterey pine, I find muhsrooms that associate with those trees. A small redwood grove in Ragle has, in the past, provided me with some mushrooms that I don't often see. However, there was very little in the way of mushrooms or other fungus so I did a couple of sketches of live oak trees. It had been cloudy and cold all morning and the sun just burst out of the clouds, creating wonderful light that I wanted to capture.
