Poppies Overlook the Mountains

Trail Thoughts and Musings

One of the great appeals of this hike is the many vistas of the Santa Cruz mountains that are presented to hiker. Here is but one example that sets a field of golden California Poppies against the backdrop of the greens and purples of the mountains. If the day is very clear, the azure blue of the Pacific ocean can be seen in the far distance.
