Deb's Park

We visited the Audobon Center at Deb's Park yesterday and enjoyed a nice hike on the Butterfly Loop. The yellow here is all wild mustard plants. I was amazed at the beauty, especially considering that this park is in the middle of a densely popluated area and less than 1/2 mile from a freeway. This could've been the setting of my favorite childhood show.

We used our backpack, but he has grown so much, we will need to look for a bigger one.
The plants were much taller than I thought they would be. Certain parts of the trail had mustard on both sides, growing 7-8 feet high. Then we saw these plants. Not sure what they are.

Way cool. There was also poison oak on the trail, but we steared clear. It was a wonderful outing. We needed the exercise and the natural surroundings.
