Another quickie: local inspiration

Last week I was in Pacific Palisades and had a little time to kill. I had the choice of heading into Santa Monica to do some shopping,  go to the gym or stay in the area and do a hike. I was so close to a couple trailheads that it seemed silly not to avail myself of the experience.  Here's a little glimpse of what I saw on my 2.5 hour hike.  The floral display was truly inspiring.

Eriogonum fasciculatum and Mimulus aurantiaca

Trichostema lanatum

Yucca whippleyi

Huge satellite dish of a Phacelia haven't a clue which species
