Summer goals

The largest suspension bridge ever built in the Los Padres backcountry. Constructed in 1938 as a depression relief project by the CCC.

Butterworth's buckwheat (Eriogonum butterworthianum) is extremely rare. Its range is almost entirely within the #ventanawilderness #montereyrangerdistrict #lospadresnationalforest

Big Sur 4"x6" #bixbybridge

An Easterner especially, who would scorn the meagerness of our summer, the dry twisted shapes of sycamores, oaks, and chaparral, a landscape August has already drained of green.
Would not understand one who will be filled with pleasure to walk over the clinging thistle, foxtails, brown grasses knowing everything was just waiting for rain and not dead. They are unable to conceive that these trees and sparse brown bushes were alive.

And hate the bright stillness of the noon without wind, without motion, the only other living thing a hawk, or an osprey suspended in the blinding, sunlit blue. – the skyline of a hill broken by no more trees than one can count.

And yet how gentle and loving it appears to one raised in this landscape.

Second stop- Big Sur! βœ¨πŸŒŠπŸ’•

Foggy morning on the reserve yesterday! Here the steep canyon of Devils Creek shows just how wild and inaccessible the terrain of the Santa Lucia range can be. .

The summer heat dries the white blossoms of Clematis into wild, tangled masses called achenes. The feathery stalks of the achenes act like parachutes to help their seeds dispersed in the wind!
