I had two goals on this visit to the Reserve: to conduct my usual observations and to finalize the locations where I planned to have my field sketching workshop participants stop for our six drawing exercises. I didn’t get to the Reserve until around noon, when everything had warmed up into the sixties. With the bright sun, there were butterflies absolutely everywhere! Plenty of wildflowers, too, including California pipevine (Aristolochia californica), which I had not managed to find in bloom in previous years.
One thought on “March Visit (3/19/2019)”
Just stumbled across your blog. What a treat! My first hike at Stebbins was just post-fire, so return visits have successively exceeded previous visits. I need to get up there soon to see how this wet winter has nourished it. Anyway, I look forward to browsing your entries here. Thanks for your work.
