Flowers of Sierra Azul

By Carol at 10:04 am on Friday, April 6, 2007

Our hike this week took us through the beautiful terrain of Sierra Azul, on the Woods Trail, near Bald Mountain and Mt. Umunhum. We had occasional views of lower Silicon Valley, as we walked through open spaces and oak forests. Many varieties of wild flowers, some of which we had not seen before, caught our interest along the way. Featured here are a number of the species that appeared along our 4.7 mile route.
