Coal Mine Ridge Part 2

Coal Mine Ridge Part 2


Here's Part 2 of my recent visit to the Old Spanish Trail at Coal Mine Ridge (Part 1 here).


California wild rose.





Quaking grass.





Hill morning glory.





An unusual white form of blue dicks.





Old Spanish Trail.





A live oak is draped in Spanish moss near the crest of the ridge.





The Old Spanish Trail goes through a small meadow.





Owl's clover.





Looking west.





A bumble bee visits rose clover.





Swallowtail butterfly.





Plectritis.





Bracket fungi growing on a fallen log help to break down its tissues and release the nutrients back into the environment for new life to use.





The afternoon sun backlights a plantain flower head as we make our way back home.
