The tallest of the pictured Coast redwoods were at least 45 meters tall. Coast redwood is the dominant tree in this part of the forest near the ruins of the historic Miller Lodge.
The trees in this cultivated apple orchard are part of the Gizdich Farm, a notable part of the agricultural heritage of Watsonville. The height of these trees is about 5.5 meters.
Crazy smell of fruit menthol
Plant I found on a south/west facing slope.
A little succulent on a dry, south/west facing slope?
Near the Watsonville Wetlands Environmental Center. My first guess would be California Ground Squirrel, based on their relative abundance here
Very black specimen.
