Bishop Pines trees are loaded with pollen. Rick touched one gently while we were hiking at Gualala Point Regional Park and look what happened! Can you see the puff of yellow pollen? Our golden retriever, Huckleberry, was watching it too. This pollen affects a lot of people, setting off their allergies. We have a storm coming in Tuesday so that will help knock some of the pollen down...I hope.
While on the bluff trail, we stopped to look for Gray Whales. We saw someone had made a driftwood heart.
At the same viewing spot, this twisted tree shows the affects of the wind.
