Right along Pine Flat Road, stayed still long enough, but wasn't close enough for my camera.

Along Pine Flat Road as I walked back from Rob Roy Flat. Like many of the oaks I saw today, these were loaded with acorns. The cap is really distinctive on these.

The bays were also full of fruit. Some were growing in triplet. I've noticed this elsewhere in the county. Of course these trees I'm looking at tend to be on the margins (along trails) so they receive more light.

Five-petaled pale pink flowers with darker pink lines on each petal radiating from the middle. Quite pretty. Single stalk, almost a brown-maroon color, not green. No distinguishable leaves; just what appeared to be buds. Growing in full sun in serpentine soil amongst hayfield tarweed and yellow star thistle.

Definitely lemon yellow, contrasted with the deep orange lichen (in the lower right of photo as contrast) made up of textured nodules but to the naked eye lies flat on the boulder it's growing on.
