All wildflowers are a delight to behold, but this time especially blown away by a bunch of yellow ones blanketing the slopes around here. Can anyone tell me the name of this beauty? The clusters on the bushes are made up of several tiny daisy-like flowers.
The BTB as she looks now, 473 or so steps, pix 2 thru 21. A foggy, windy day.
Continuing uphill from Lincoln after the BTB, after reaching the top of the Connector Trail (208 steps, pic 22) at Immigrant Point Overlook, crossed to the recent Anza Trail extension (23, 24, 25) and down to Compton/Washington/Hunter Road. Pic 26 shows one of the new trail additions that passes close to the residences so one doesn’t have to walk on the street. There are speed bumps and crosswalks in the neighborhood as well.
Pic 27 is the Presidio Forest, its upper part just off Battery Caulfield Road. There’s thick sand underfoot with some tree roots to use as steps at times. At its foot on the westside is the south end of the Lobos Creek Valley Trail/Boardwalk, a restored coastal dunes habitat.
Soon crossing Battery Caulfield Road and up to the Marine Cemetery Vista Overlook. The stairway down the east side has 90 steps. I count the partially stepped boardwalk for 14 more: pix 28, 29.
During a recent Mountain Lake walkaround noticed new fencing and gates (last pic); still hoping for some eastside replacement benches.
