Flower Collection (13 photos)

Ceanothus, Black Mountain Open Space Park

Black Mountain Loop

We had to postpone our #fridayswithfred hike to Saturday due to unforeseen events, and had to make it a short afternoon hike (more like walk) due to further unforeseen events. 🙂 The good thing was that Shuwen was able to join us, of course! We went to nearby “Little Black Mountain” (the “real/big” Black Mountain is further east, reachable from Pamo Valley, quite a long hike actually) and were satisfied with reaching it’s secondary peak.
