Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve, Part 1

Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve, Part 1


Last Saturday D. and I took a walk on the North Pond and Sequoia Audubon Trails at Pescadero Marsh Natural Preserve, and I took some pics.


The North Pond Trail.





North Pond.





California aster and bull thistle.







Looking back down the North Pond Trail.





A western fence lizard hides in the brush alongside the trail.





A view of North Pond from a rise in the trail.





Dried seed heads of cow parsnip and coast angelica.







A ruby-red California blackberry leaf glows in the autumn sun.





Dabbling ducks in North Pond.





A view of the Pacific Ocean from the trail.





A meadow in the salt marsh is festooned with spider webs that billow in the breeze.





The lagoon.





A great egret splashes in the lagoon.





Part 2 here.
