Wild cucumber. It climbs on everything!
Hikers have been scraping the mud from their shoes here on the lower rung of the fence.
the hills are covered with Prickly Pear cactus , sage, buckwheat and a whole bunch of other plants I don't know.
Up close and personal....
this is a Dudleya, this thing was bigger than my head...
you know me and my hidden pictures...thought this looked like a bunny head.....
working on back lighting here...kind of too bright today but I like it anyway
Bee (wildlife!) on a sunflower
the trail leading out of an oak grove, through the wildflowers and past the cactus to the creek. So many changes in vegetation in just a few feet. Nice going down, steep as a cows face coming up ( my granny used to say that) It was a pretty good day.
