Long Ridge Open Space Preserve

On Saturday D. and I went to Long Ridge Open Space Preserve and walked part of the Peters Creek Trail, and I took some pics before I got too tired and we had to come home.

Grassland habitat.

Star thistles are very owie to the touch.

Grassy hillsides and contraily skies.

The Peters Creek Trail goes through a woodland habitat.

A skipper butterfly sips nectar at a thistle.

We pass by remnants of an abandoned orchard, probably planted when this was private ranch land.

We see a pool in Peters Creek, full of fallen leaves and water striders.

A fallen bigleaf maple leaf is an emblem of autumn.
