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.


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.
