Yet another beautiful day as we hiked 2.5 miles in the nearby Jack London State Park. Although there were several cars in the parking lot, we choose roads/trails that led us to encounter few people, and everyone was polite about social distancing.
We stopped on the road as we drove to the park at one point to take these photos of flowers, clarkia, commonly called Farewell to Spring.
The following photos were all taken within the park.
These first four show how woodpeckers will drill a hole to bury an acorn in wood as Shirley's finger is pointing out or simply to find an insect for food and, as in this case, drill holes all the way up this very old silo tower.
Many eucalyptus trees with bark coming off in the spring and poison oak growing up the trunks.
A madrone tree.
The following photos were taken by Shirley from the car as we were driving home.
