NWR Ravenswood Trail

NWR Ravenswood Trail

On Saturday D. and I visited the Ravenswood Trail at the National Wildlife Refuge, and I took some pics.


The trail runs along a salt evaporation pond, which is bright red due to halophilic bacteria living in the water.





Mesembryanthemum in bloom.





A little sandpiper trots along the crust of salt at the edge of the pond.





The trail.





White pelicans wheel over Ravenswood Slough.





A dead crab on the levee.





Power lines stride along the landscape, like an electric forest.







A little glob of algae, surrounded by bubbles, floats on the water.





Maintenance boardwalks lead to the power lines.







A wing, probably from a gull.





Looking toward the Dumbarton Bridge.





Unappetizing-looking scum builds up at the edges of some ponds.





Looking straight up from the bottom of the one the power line towers.
