Wandering and wildflowers: February blossoms in Orange County’s wildlands
It’s wildflower time in Orange County’s wild foothills! Today I went for a wander in Limestone Canyon, doing my duty as an Irvine Ranch Conservancy volunteer on an “open access day” — those few times a year these ecologically sensitive trails are opened to the public. From my vantage point on the Sandtrap Trail, I had a good view of the hundreds of folks headed for “The Sinks,” billed as the “Grand Canyon of Orange County.” Having visited the Grand Canyon a few times, I can safely say it’s not even close; however, it is a fabulous destination for nature lovers who want a nice destination on a sunny February morning.
Here are a bunch more photos from this most pleasant morning:
Lots to be thankful for . . . a sunny (mostly) barefoot morning, enjoying wildflowers in Limestone Canyon!
