Winter weather of the light and fluffy kind paid a visit to many of the Land Trust’s protected lands in February, creating postcard-worthy images of some of our most iconic landscapes.

Linda Falls Preserve in Angwin saw the most snow, transforming the area into a monochromatic clone of the Sierra mountain range. The Pacific Union College forest, located down the road from Linda Falls, morphed into a winter wonderland as well. According to the National Weather Service, Angwin received an estimated eight inches of snow, with some residents reporting 10-12 inches.

Archer Taylor Preserve didn’t get quite as much, but still enough to lay a light blanket on the renowned redwood stands and Maggie’s Peak. The National Weather Service estimated two to five inches fell along the Mayacamas mountain range between Sonoma County and Napa County.

Our Sutro Ranch Preserve in the eastern hills above Yountville saw snow too, in similar amounts to Archer Taylor Preserve.
