Pulgas Ridge


On this beautiful sunny Sunday, D. and I visited Pulgas Ridge Open Space Preserve (btw, that's my pic up there on the preserve's web page, woot!).  Here are some of the pics I took.


Bermuda buttercups are in bloom all over the place.





The rear door of an abandoned rehab facility near the trail.





A tiny western fence lizard basks on the back patio.





A look at the front of the abandoned buildings.





Sow thistles are in bloom as well.





A warning sign is posted at some equipment for the new Hetch Hetchy water pipeline that runs through part of the preserve.





Hound's tongue in bloom.





A stile on the trail makes an impromptu lost and found spot.





The view across the canyon to the neighborhood on the hilltop.





A look down the Hassler Loop Trail.





Old, north-facing stone walls host lichen and miniature gardens.







Lots of periwinkle blooming in the shade.





A little dog is excited to have found the scent of a ground squirrel (the squirrel eluded the pup).
