Wonderful photographs. You have such a keen eye. Viewing your slideshow of Crested Butte I swear I could hear the insects humming and the trees rustling as the warm summer breeze warmed the cockles of my heart.
It’s a gifted photographer indeed that can present one’s own back yard (as it were) in such a sparkling, vivid new light. Thanks!
I’ll be back to check out the other destinations very soon.
Keep up the good work – our planet needs motivated, talented people such as yourself to help tell its story.
Mid May is on the late side for the best flowers along the coast. Two places I would suggest is to stop at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden and Pt. Lobos. Also watch the road side and you might stop at some of the state parks such as Andre Molera, and Garrapata and see what is bloom there. Also check wildflower websites such as Natural History Wanderings, Theodore Payne and the Calphoto Yahoo group and see what people are posting at the time of your trip. You might also call the visitors centers at the various parks you will pass along the way. Hope this helps.
Hi, I just found you and happy to be here.
Want to let you that; I was at PIPELINE TRAIL, next to Lake Pleasant Regional Park, AZ and found some wildflowers there.
My wish finding a large area (like side of the hill, etc) but I only found a small group of them and that’s why my pictures show individual shots: http://www.naturehike.net/wildflowers-pipelineAZ.html
Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy viewing them. Thank you.
Sandy, at Pt Reyes yesterday we saw a bright orange lily-type flower, bright like a CA poppy and the same size, with a purple center, and like a yellow daisy in the middle of that. Any idea what it might be? I can send you a picture . I cant find it in my i.d. books.
Thanks for the addition and your comments. I actually, meant the Bristlecones as a group were the oldest trees. I am aware the Methusula tree is in the Schulman area. I think it is good thing that there are no signs identifying it.
