Will Ericson has been exploring the Wheatfield fork of the Gualala River and some of its tributaries. He found these rare beauties, a colony of California Fawn Lilies, Erythronium californicum.
Will also found a stand of old-growth Redwood trees in his wanderings.
And while he was there, he startled a Spotted Owl from its roosting place, a thrilling sighting of this endangered little owl.
Thanks to Will for allowing me to shared his photos with you here!
Mary Sue Ittner hiked Skaggs Springs Road with the Thursday Ramblers. She found many wildflowers in bloom. First is Red Larkspur, Delphinium nudicaule.
And Blue Dicks, Dichelostemma capitatum.
Next found was California Fawn Lily, Erythronium californicum - just beautiful!
Tomorrow I will share three more wildflowers found by Mary Sue and the intrepid hikers. Thanks to Mary Sue for allowing me to share her photos with you here.
