Darted for very brief moments in and out of shrub on left side of image---perhaps once every three to five minutes. Difficult but worth while.

EBRPD's helicopter kept buzzing over head while we walked, but save the helicopter that was the only human(s) we ever saw on our hike. A permit is required, but the Rocky Ridge trail in the Upper San Leandro Reservoir is definitely worth checking out.

This was growing very close to some coast live oak but not underneath. I didn't have much time to dilly dally along the trail so my observations for the day were lacking. I didn't think to bruise the fungus to see a color change.
