On Saturday D. and I went to Bear Creek Redwoods, and here's some of the pics I took.
The pond near the parking lot.
Milkmaids are in bloom in the woodsy areas all over the preserve.
The trail goes through dense woods.
We see a turkey vulture sunning its wings on a dead branch.
Trees are coming into leaf.
As the trail rises we can see views of neighboring mountains.
A bee in a broom blossom.
Broom is an invasive non-native, and it has completely taken over an abandoned vineyard in this section of the preserve.
Another view before we turn around and head home.
