In response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate
This is a close up of a Jeffrey Pine Cone I found on the side of the portion of the trail that has been opened in the Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve.
I was a bit surprised to find Jeffrey Pine’s along this part of Mt. Umunhum.
I don’t think that I have seen many other Jeffrey Pine’s in the Santa Cruz Mountains. What else will we find when the trail to the top of Mt. Umunhum is opened up?
That’s enough of a mid-Saturday break from yard work. I better get back out there….so, I can hike tomorrow!
Where are you hiking this weekend?
If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
