When we humans are not trying to turn my part of California into England or at least some place that has a higher rain fall, this is what the land scape around me really looks like. Come the end of June, it will be dry and brown, right now everything is in bloom.
Today our Photography group hiked down to Paradise Falls in Wildwood park. 400 feet elevation change from where we started to the falls and then...400 feet Up back to the cars.
Grass along the trail back lite by the sun.
A lesser Gold finch in a mustard plant.
Dropping down to the river.
See the bird nest in the hole in the rock?

cool looking flower thing along the trail ( like my scientific names?)
Climbing back up from the river.

It was really a beautiful morning.
