Wildlife Refuge

Wildlife Refuge

On Saturday D. and I visited the National Wildlife Refuge in Fremont to enjoy a mild winter day, and here are some of the pics I took.

Gumplant in bloom.

Looking east-southeast.

Agaves thrust flower spikes up into the air.

Seed pods are developing on the agaves.

A look up and down Newark Slough from the Tidelands Trail.

Scofflaws are flying a drone here illegally. 

A beautiful view looking northwest.

Toyon berries and rose hips provide bright pops of color in the subdued autumn landscape.
