 Interesting clouds today.





 This has to be the most interesting fungi we have seen.




 Downed tree on the trail.





















 Gate pulley.


 Ewww. Maggots?





 Flowering bay - so beautiful.











 










Oh please, don't get up for us..


 Momma and baby on the ridge. 







 Los Vaqueros Reservoir




 Yep, that's the trail.




 And another one.



We haven't had rain for about a week, and this hillside was dripping with water.



 We came across a few rocks that had been topped with dirt - interesting.








Our favorite lunch spot at this park, even though our lady parts are thumpin' the whole time. 

 Best way to insure your PB&J is squished before consuming - ha ha ha. 



 The iPhone doesn't do distant close-ups very well. The hills looked like velvet.


 Okaaay... someone did not follow placement directions, or bridge funding was cut short.


Heaven's gate?


 Absolutely stunning! The photo does not do this view justice.
