Los Altos Redwood Grove

Los Altos Redwood Grove

On Sunday I spent a little time moseying around in the Los Altos Redwood Grove Nature Preserve, and here are some of the pics I took.

Redwood sorrel is a common flower found in redwood forests.

An acorn shell on the railing of a bridge over Adobe Creek.

Redwoods were transplanted here from the foggy coastal mountains in the 1920s and require supplemental irrigation to stay healthy.

The perforations of a metal picnic table form a grid to catch fallen leaves.

A furled periwinkle.

The creek hosts a small population of three-spine stickleback.
