BIO 114: Journal #2

Today I went to the Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park in Laguna Niguel. It was really cool because there was so many different kinds of plants all over and many of them were flowering. I only had to walk for like 5 min and I had more than enough observations for this assignment, and many of the plants I had never seen before. I will definitely be going back at a time when there is hopefully less people around.
