Enough bristlecone pines to shake a stick at

...and I have a bunch more, but I got bored with p-shop.

paintbrush and poppies

Horestail and a foul-smelling mint

Cream cups and lupine

Sedum sp.

Textures and critters, Lost Coast (May '10)

Well, that's more or less the contents here...

The Lost Coast is very windy

wacky conglomerate

I love driftwood....

I tried taking some pictures of the ocean through
my polarized sunglasses because the many shades of 
blue were fantastic... the results, not so much

Sponge? Coral? Something?

Sea urchin... I'll be spending a lot more time
trying to perfect this photo

I think this quail did have a full complement of legs
maybe he's grooming his feathery butt

Wild turkey being chased by a blackbird

(evidence of) black bears on the beach!

Artistic seaweed arrangement

Maybe I'll get around to editing the rest of my photos from my May Lost Coast trip soon...
