Xmas letter - 2017
We try to take several multi-day trips around California and the west to see wildflowers and wildlife every year. We went to southern California in early March and in late March we went to central California. In May on a 7 day trip along Highway 395, we saw this desert mariposa lily. A spectacular first for us.
These jewelflowers seen on the same trip were totally unexpected. The angry ants whose nest I stood on while taking pictures were unexpected too. Another of many firsts on that trip.
