Coyote Ridge

We had a wildflower walk at this preserve/dumpsite today. I bailed partway up because it was so hot I didn't know if I could make it to the top. So I didn't get the super shots I was planning on. The view from the top is supposed to be spectacular! These are serpentine soils, the kind of poor-nutrient soil once so common in California, before the birth the the nitrogen-spewing internal combustion engine. I did see a butterfly, a Painted Lady that skipped down the path always a little ahead of us as we went back to the parking lot.
