Anyway, here are the pictures for the day:
California Poppy in the California Sun!
Lupins on the top of the mountain... and the road 900 feet below where the hike started
Lupins and Poppies
Lupin in the sun
A White-breasted Nuthatch peeping out of hole (they should be getting ready to nest perhaps?)
A Rock Wren singing - America's got Talent!
Nope. Turns out they are Western Pond Turtles!
