I was curious to see if any wildflowers were similar to ones I've become familiar with here in California. However, I didn't study the ground as much this time around, as my brother and I were talking about various things.
We did come across this flower which looks very similar to the Redwood Sorrel. Perhaps it's a smaller cousin or something as they both bloom from clovers.
The air was warm and thick with moisture. It brought back pleasant memories of hot, humid summers in Maryland.
We saw a garter snake slithering across the path, into the underbrush.
There also were a lot of birds chirping away under the green canopy. It had a resonating effect, almost like in a tunnel.
