Hobbit/Valley/China Creek Loop

We hiked up the Washburne Beach to the Hobbit Trail, crossed 101 to the Valley Trail, lunched at the beaver pond (beavers seem to be long gone). Took the China Creek Loop and kept a sharp eye out for the Gnome Plant.

Low and behold there it was, I think right where I found it before. Look at that moss with all the rain we've had!

Hat Hunters

Art and Sally realize they are not in the desert anymore.

Ripening clusters of Silk Tassel fruit.

Ponderosa Pine camping

We took our 2nd home over to the Pondo country. How delicious to smell the warm piney air.
Love walking among those giants. I spent most of my time birding. Great birds over there, so different than the coast.
