The New Year at Steep Ravine

I spent the last two days at my favorite retreat in NorCal, Steep Ravine. I’ve posted about this special place a few times – here and here. Each time I go, its a great mix of the familiar and the totally new. This trip Sandra and I went with our friends Tania and Philip. It was their first time at Steep Ravine and they were enamored.

We caught a delicious sunset as the westering sun snuck out under the last of the weekend’s rain presaging a clear star-filled night of talking around the potbelly stove followed by a  gorgeous sunny Monday of bush-waking and beach strolling. In my other Steep Ravine posts I focussed on the ocean and the cabins themselves, this time I’d like to take you up into the redwood forests in the hills behind the cabins!
