I did not know you had made observations along this road, until I made a project. LOL.

Yep, I had some email correspondence about this Phacelia this very week, and it may be Phacelia cicutaria var. hubbyi. I have a photo, but not very good and need to get another few.

(The Refugio Road project map is coming up black, even though the place shows properly.)

Yeah, I think I was camping at Refugio Beach and decided to see what was up the road. Pretty cool botanizing up there! At least for me, since I don't know my SoCal plants very well.

Your map looks ok to me.

I had the lat and lon mixed up, and fixed the map.

After the populated part, the road eventually leads to two non-maintained roads, one straight over down the other side, and one to the east toward Santa Ynez peak. Even more neat stuff, because the roads are hardly used, but scary. I had more photos, but did not know where they were taken so I could not load them - likes this one of a mind-boggling amount of monkey flower.
