Where's my camera?
Went on a nice hike today to one of my favorite trails, the south end of the Keddie Cascade Trail. Begins near the Spanish Creek crossing 1/4 mile shy of Oakland Feather River Camp. Didn't expect to see much of anything blooming because it was cold and windy and we're expecting a week of rain and/or snow. Lo and behold, we saw buttercups, whitlow grass, chickweed, two kinds of violets, silk tassel bush, and a new one to me - dagger pod, Phoenicaulis cheiranthoides, a member of the mustard family. So, why did I leave my camera home? May just have to hike out there tomorrow in the rain.
