This past weekend was a perfect one to get out on the trail. The parks are still green, the wildflowers are peaking, and the weather was absolutely beautiful. I chose to spend Saturday morning up at Russian Ridge, and then during yesterday’s record highs I headed over to the redwoods of Big Basin to stroll through the cool shaded forest along the relatively untraveled Whitehouse Ridge Trail.
Most of the photos I took were of the wildflower variety – it’s hard to resist them right now. But the views from the trail in Big Basin towards the Pigeon Point lighthouse and Ano Nuevo were also stunning.
