If I Ran The Zoo is one of my favorite blogs, because of "Tehipite" Tom Hilton's great California wildflower and scenery pictures. If you click on the pix, you're taken to his flikr area, where you can snag some gorgeous Sierra scenery in big jpgs suitable for desktop background images.

Tom's other endeavor is Up And Down California, a sesquicentennial "liveblog" of William H. Brewer's journals from the 1861-1862 Whitney Geological Survey of California. The text is greatly enhanced by Tom's pictures of the historical sites and flora mentioned in the journal entries, and judiciously-chosen hyperlinks to various background material. Recommended to all California residents and to anyone interested in the history of the American West.
