What with Texas-sized colds, we were down hard. Finally, today, we hiked Miller Woods. The lower wood shows signs of undergrowth recovery, as the thinned fir trees let in more light.
The upper wood, largely deciduous, is lush with ferns, and shady. Wildflowers are still in bloom.
I am glad to reach the summit. Don't laugh too hard, Cali friends .. the high point on the way to the coast here is 760 ft.
The meadow/hay field is covered with tall grass, daisies, as well as dandelions and the occasional brodaiea. The daisies are so thick that the meadow appear to painted in swathes of white against the green.
Foxglove blooms, although not as lush as previous years. And, of course, there is the ubiquitous blackberry.
