10 ft bush succulent leaf
This California Vole was creeping through the wet undergrowth along the Big Sur River at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park.
Western Grey Squirrels (Sciurus griseus) remain fairly common in the Redwood and riparian sections of Big Sur. Unfortunately, in other parts of central California, especial near suburban areas, they are being displaced by the larger and more assertive introduced Eastern Fox Squirrels (Sciurus niger).
lots of these great big False Solomon's Seal on the hike from Big Sur Station out to Sykes Hot Springs. Pretty impressive crop considering the fire that ripped through there a little over a year ago
a fire ripped through this area about a year ago, so suprised to find much fungus at all, but there were tons of these cup fungus on some of the recently fallen tan oak leaves. I've had a difficult time identifying this guy.
Large area of these Indian Warriors, Pedicularis densiflorus, on the trail to Sykes Hot Springs in Big Sur area. It interesting I always see these plants right around 2000ft on Mt Diablo and same thing in Big Sur
Sea Lion along the shores of Big Sur.
We were hiking along a trail that goes up a ridge overlooking the ocean right on the coast in Big Sur California. Both my mother and I grew up in Big Sur and we have never seen these lizards here in our whole lives despite being avid hikers. Recently we have begun to see them in the area.
