Sheep Ranch Pathway Today

 
Today was the actual hike. Here's what the water lilies look like in morning light.

There were five of us- a nice size group.

Quite a few interesting plants. Here is Racemed Milkwort, Polygala polygama. It's a cousin to the gaywings that bloom in the spring.

Also found Smooth Ruellia, Ruellia strepens, a nice wetland plant. In fact it was growing right in the water.

Little Leverentz Lake was making nice reflections.

And I got a pretty good picture of the closed wings of the Red Spotted Purple Admiral butterfly.

We hiked about 5 miles. The weather was quite nice- you'll never hear us complain about that!

In other news: I worked on the trailer in the afternoon. Making progress. You'll see, soon.

Love that reflection on the lake. If the weather was anything like here, it was a perfect day for a hike.
