Wildflowers at Calaveras Big Trees’ Bradley Grove

July 5, 2010:

Grand Collomia

The day after the 4th of July at the cabin, we decided to go for our annual wildflower walk at the Bradley Grove in nearby Calaveras Big Trees State Park.   Unlike the two other grove hikes in the park, this one does not have any Giant Sequoias, but rather is a grove dedicated to a patron of the park, and is second-growth mixed pine and such.

Late spring wildflowers in Willits

Sarah & I spent Memorial Day with her cousin and his lovely family near the little town of Willits in Northern California, and I was surprised to see a great many wildflowers still in bloom as we walked around their property.

Prague, Part 25: Prazky Hrad (Prague Castle) – II

Despite the throngs of visitors to the Prague Castle complex, if you go just a little ways away from the tourist attractions, many peaceful nooks and crannies await, and these were my favorite parts of the Castle, and of Prague generally.

Having already covered the sights of Prague Castle here, I will let the photos speak for themselves in this, the last post in my Prague series.
