It is officially summer and it can get pretty hot out here. My husband and I have agreed to make a weekly hiking trip early in the mornings before the heat is unbearable. I'll try to just post some shots of anything new or interesting we come across.
This week we seemed to focus on the hot dessert bearing flowers and plants on our trail. We ran into:
|Wild Mustard (Brissica rapa)|
I read somewhere that the Wild Mustard was brought to California from Spain by the Franciscan Father Junipero Serra.
|Purple Sage (Salvia leucophylla)|
|Prickly Pear Cactus (Opuntia littoralis)|
