Mount Tamalpais and its surrounding forests and streams are my territory.  The lakes, flowers, vistas and wildlife  just knock me out, they're so beautiful.  They restore my connection the land, and through these photos, I hope you can restore yours too.

Nature needs us, and we need nature, more so every day. The lands we want to preserve are being overused, abused, and underfunded, and by their loss we lose too. But by their wellbeing, we restore our connection to nature, and what we give our kids and their kids.

I hope you enjoy these photos, and take some home with you. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you.

Best wishes,

Martha E. Ture
